Visitors to the Baltimore Museum of Industry can interact with the technologies which forged the Industrial Revolution. Exhibits include recreated workshops of machining, printing, garment-making and metalworking, as well as local inventions from the first disposable bottle cap to modern radar. There are also lots of hands-on activities for kids.
Did you know that Baltimore is linked to the history of the Ouija board? Find out how at this extensive exhibition.
Crammed in a dark closet with two of your friends, you held the flashlight as steady as you could and asked the most important question you could think of: “Does Scott like-like me?” The three of you put your preteen chipped pink nail-polished fingers on the pointer and let the spirits, who clearly had nothing better to do and definitely were not actually your friends, guide you. Relive those goose-bumped days with this exhibit on the Ouija board and its Baltimore roots. Compiled by Ouija historian Robert Murch, from his and other private collections, the memorabilia is too extensive to fit in your childhood bedroom closet, so hopefully the spirits can meet you there.
