Plan Your Visit

We welcome visitors to the Museum on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 AM to 1 PM and on Saturdays from 11 AM to 2 PM, or by appointment.

Admission to the Museum is free, but your donations are appreciated.

We are located just off of Route 40 and West Bel Air Avenue at 18 Howard Street, Aberdeen MD 21001. A municipal parking lot (free) is available right next to the Museum on Walnut Alley.

Plan to spend at least half an hour exploring the exhibits. Our exhibitions showcase different aspects of Aberdeen history, including the canning industry, railroads, local businesses, sports, and Aberdeen Proving Ground. Stay tuned for new exhibitions, coming soon!

Inclement Weather Policy: The Museum will be closed when Harford County Public Schools (HCPS) closes schools on weekdays or cancels activities on weekends due to inclement weather. The Museum will still be open in the event of an HCPS delayed opening.
