Monocacy Visitor Center

On our trip to Monocacy, we visited the new Visitor Center. Built to look like a large barn, it's modern and pleasant inside. It was not immediately apparent that there was a museum upstairs, but definitely it's worth going up to see it. They've done a lot of interpretation with their artifacts.

I've seen small museums full of artifacts with little explanation of what their significance is. This one is the opposite - more information than items, lots of pictures, maps that light up, stories, a full-size model of a farmhouse room with sound effects of the battle. Both adults and children will enjoy these exhibits.
