“There are museums in Western Maryland?”
That was an incredulous colleague speaking, after I vaguely mentioned taking a trip to the mountain side of the Old Line State to check out the area’s museums.
Yes, I said museums. I’m neither a skier nor much of a hiker, at least in the cold. But I hankered for a small-town getaway on a wintry January weekend, and small-town museums just seemed like a funky idea. Obviously.
But hah. I am vindicated. The answer is not only, yes, there are museums in Western Maryland, but also, boy, are there ever.
