It is very small, but it has some good things. Be advised that it is on the top of a steep hill above Main Street.

I came today with my 4year old for their new Story time. I didn't have any expectations and was pleasantly surprised that the museum is in an old church. It is very small but had some very interesting information, especially for residents of Howard County. The Story time at this time was very small and intimate. If course this can change if it increases in popularity. I would definitely return to look over the displays more.

The museum is quite small, but it does a great job at discussing the history of the county. It's located in an old church and is only open on the weekends. They had a nice gift shop filled with Maryland memorabilia. The volunteer who was attending to us was very friendly and knew a lot about the area. Admission is free, but they do recommend a donation.

I am a history buff, can't get enough of it. Not sure of the hours, prices or cost to be a member. But try it, you will love it.

This beautiful little museum is really tucked away and up on the hill above Ellicott City. Although the building itself is accessible there is limited parking close by, but if you are able, you can visit on your strolls through the town. (Ellicott City is so much more than Main Street!). Wonderful displays that inform visitors about the founders in the area, well curated. They have a music series and a Friday lunch lecture series that appeared to be scheduled with interesting speakers. Also- the gift shop is a great place to get Howard County or Maryland gifts including books, maps, flag-covered trinkets, etc.
