The Star-Spangled Banner National Historic Trail is in part made possible through collaboration of sites - public and private - belonging to different agencies and groups. Due to this, entrance fees vary from site to site.
The Trail's premier visitor center is at Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine. Up to date information about fees and passes available there can be found below:
The entrance fee to the historic area of the park is $15.00 for adults 16 years of age and older; children 15 and younger are free. This fee provides the visitor with a 7-day entrance permit to Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine. You must keep your entrance receipt to re-enter the park in the 7-day time period.
