About Us

Formed in 1982 to preserve the history, heritage, and memory of Maryland’s organized militia, the Society was the driving force behind the establishment of what is now the Maryland Museum of Military History. While the militia remains a prime focus of the Society, it seeks to preserve the memory of the military accomplishments of all Marylanders, regardless of branch of service.


The Museum is generally open Monday to Friday from 9:30 AM to 2:30 PM and closed on weekends and holidays unless prior arrangements have been made. Please call 410-576-1496 well ahead of your planned visit to ensure that the Museum is open for ANY visit, even during normal weekday business hours. It is strongly suggested that visitors call 410-576-1496 well ahead of time to ensure that the Museum is open for ANY visit, even during normal weekday business hours.

If you wish to arrange a Museum tour on a weekend or holiday, please call 410-576-1496 as far ahead of time as possible. We will do everything we can to arrange staffing so that the Museum will be open for your visit.

Due to security restrictions, all adults must bring photo identification.
