Guided tours, special exhibitions and the Society’s rich collection of decorative and fine arts tell the story of Frederick County, Maryland, from the Colonial period, through the Civil War, to the present day. The Society’s exquisite collection of tall case clocks is a “must see” during your visit. The Museum’s Heritage Garden provides beauty, as well as educational experiences, through natural elements and living exhibits in season.
