The mission of the Maryland Women’s Heritage Center is to preserve the past, understand the present, and shape the future by recognizing, respecting, and transmitting the experiences and contributions of Maryland women and girls of diverse backgrounds and regions. After visiting the Heritage Center we will have lunch at Gertrude’s, an award winning restaurant within the Baltimore Museum of Art Gertrude’s serves a “traditional Chesapeake fare with a sophistication,” prepared by award winning chef, John Shields, a TV personality and author. Chef Shields is suggesting a garden vegetable omelet, classic eggs benedict, a berry good salad or shrimp salad po’ boy as our lunch choices. Dessert choices and beverages are also included. The dining room itself is very interesting and regionally decorated. The remainder of the afternoon you may take a self-guided tour of the museum’s collection.
