Best Museum You Probably Haven't Been To

Opened in 2005, the Lewis Museum hosts permanent and temporary exhibits about black history and culture in Maryland, and those exhibits are really, really good. Our favorite sections are the theater where visitors are treated to the sounds of such Baltimore legends as Chick Webb and Billie Holiday, and, in a very different vein, the exhibit about the history of lynching in Maryland that serves as a poignant reminder of where we’ve all come from and what we need to remember going forward. Oh, and leave time to visit the café—best cornbread in town.
