Lewis Museum of Maryland African American History and Culture, and season tickets to the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra. Once in town, I added cards from the American Visionary Art Museum, the National Great Blacks in Wax Museum, the B&O Railroad Museum, and the National Aquarium.

When she got me a membership to the Baltimore Museum of Industry for my birthday last year, I knew this was the real deal.
