Group Arrangements

NPS/Tim Ervin


If you are planning to bring a group to visit Fort McHenry, please read the information in all 4 sections below.

Pre-payments for group reservations can be done through by selecting a single 7-Day Entry Pass and adding total number of adults and children. Academic fee waivers can only be turned in by the academic institution that is visiting the site.

If you represent a commercial tour business and are coordinating directly with the park to facilitate the visit, you cannot turn in the Academic Fee Waiver on their behalf. Instead, you must have a Commercial Use Authorization on file at the park prior to your arrival. Please see the Permits and Commercial Use Authorization page for more information.
