Join us for the first fee-free day of 2020! In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s birthday, National Park Service sites across the country will waive admission fees on January 20, 2020. Visit Fort McHenry, the birthplace of 'The Star-Spangled Banner' for free and explore centuries of military and cultural history. Visitors can assist a park ranger with changing the morning flag at 10 am or the evening flag at 4 pm. Scheduled ranger programs will take place throughout the day.

Begin planning your visit by reviewing the park hours of operation and weather notifications. Please note that hours of operation and program availability may change due to incliment weather.
