9118 Brandywine Rd, Clinton, MD 20735 - United States



Located in the historic 1852 Surratt Tavern and known for its role in the Lincoln Assassination Conspiracy, the Surratt House Museum is a catalyst for civic dialogue, dedicated to utilizing scholarly and inclusive engagement to expand the national narrative and the notions of liberty, equality, and equity by critically analyzing the impacts of the American Civil War and Reconstruction.


On Saturday, September 17th, the Surratt House Museum will be offering self guided tours of the historic structure from 11:00 am - 3:00 pm with a special emphasis on the experience of the individuals enslaved on the site and how the Battle of Antietam, raging about 90 miles to the north, impacted their lives.

Participation in Museum Day is open to any tax-exempt or governmental museum or cultural venue on a voluntary basis. Smithsonian magazine encourages museum visitation, but is not responsible for and does not endorse the content of the participating museums and cultural venues, and does not subsidize museums that participate.
