If you go to the Evergreen Museum and Library, you will be transported back in time to the opulent Gilded Age, when Baltimore’s Garrett family was real railroad royalty. The grandiose Evergreen Mansion built in 1878 was the family's 48-room home. Convenient to The Zenith apartments, the estate is situated on 26 beautifully landscaped acres. A tour of the house-turned-museum gives you a glimpse into a different age, and you can explore the family's collection of decorative arts, sculpture, rare books, manuscripts, and other treasures, which number over 50,000 pieces in total. The complex is also home to the Bakst Theater, which hosts performances by internationally famous chamber music groups and soloists, as well as lectures, films, and other wonderful events. Admission to the museum is $8 for adults, $7 for seniors, and just $5 for students and children. See their website for tour schedules.
