Some cool places to visit on a hot weekend


We are fortunate to have so many museums close to visit that are free.  The Walters Art Gallery in Baltimore is a fascinating place to visit that has much more than you would expect in an art museum and it’s free.  If you have never visited the Walters you have missed a great museum.

The Baltimore Museum of Art on the Johns Hopkins University campus is also free and has an amazing art collection.

For a pizza treat when visiting either of these places try my favorite Baltimore pizza place, Iggie’s Pizza on North Calvert St. for some really unique pizzas.

For the more scientific minded the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center Air and Space Museum at Dulles Airport is where the Smithsonian Museum shows all the planes too big to show on the Mall museum.  The Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird, the fastest jet in the world; the Boeing Dash 80, the prototype of the 707 and the Boeing B-29 Superfortress Enola Gay that dropped the first atomic bomb.  The highlight is the Enterprise Space Shuttle that has recently been retired.
