Photo of the Day: Baltimore Basilica


At work yesterday afternoon, we were spontaneously given today (New Year’s Eve) off as a holiday. Hooray! So I took an excursion to Baltimore. I did not succeed in visiting anything only open on weekdays, but I did visit the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, known as America’s first cathedral (the process of building it began in 1806). The basilica offers guided and self-guided tours, with the self-guide showing points of interest on the main and crypt levels, and some exhibit space in and near the crypt as well.

Happy New Year!

About Laura

Paralegal with Master of Arts in Teaching in Museum Education, frequent museum visitor, based in Washington, DC. I care about what museums can do, both in terms of public offerings and internal practices, to make the world a better place. I blog about museum education ("informed"), the social work of museums ("humane"), and visitor experience ("citizenry").
