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 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.
