What is the arrival/departure process for groups?


Please brief your group on our safety notice. For additional information on park laws and policies, please review the Superintendent's Compendium.


When your group arrives at Fort McHenry, please have them remain on the bus or outside the Visitor Center while the group leader checks in. The group leader should have the fee waiver confirmation and/or payment to present to the ranger at the Visitor Center desk. Program information will also be provided at this time. The Visitor Center is the park headquarters as well as a museum. Please have the group remain quiet so that others may enjoy their visit.

LARGER GROUPS: Please note that we can comfortably accommodate no more than 75 visitors in the exhibit area. It may be helpful to divide your group into smaller groups to visit the exhibit area.


Prior to leaving Fort McHenry, please have your group meet in a designated place. Please use sidewalks and crosswalks to load and unload passengers in designated areas.
