If you are buying a ticket for a handicapped person, please call the museum at 410-326-2042 x 16, 17, or 18. We have a seating section designated for handicapped on the left side of the yellow section.

12. Where do I park for the concert?

Parking for the concert is located in the field across the street from the Museum's front gate. A parking donation of $2.00 is requested. Parking is not permitted in the parking lots of local businesses surrounding the museum. Violators will be towed.

13. Can I bring a cooler?

No coolers are allowed on the grounds. All money raised from purchases at the beverage stations goes towards the museum and its educational programs and exhibits.

TOP

14. What happens if it rains?

All of our concerts are rain or shine events. Concerts are held during inclement weather. The performer is under cover, but the seats are not, so the show will go on if it rains. We ask our patrons to dress appropriately, bring a raincoat, and enjoy the evening. No umbrellas will be permitted into the venue. If severe weather occurs, we provide as much shelter as possible inside the museum, but ask patrons who drove to return to their vehicles until the severe weather has passed. In the event a show is cancelled due to weather, it is up to the performer to try to reschedule the event. If the performer is unable to reschedule, then ticket buyers can send their tickets back to the museum to receive a tax-deduction letter for their financial support. We will not issue any refunds even in the event of a cancellation.

15. I bought my ticket and can't use it, can I return it?

There are no refunds or exchanges on tickets. In cases where we are sold out, you may leave your name and number at 410-326-2042 x 16, 17 or 18 and we will try to pass it along if someone calls and is interested in tickets.

16. I ordered my tickets the week before the concert and haven't received them in the mail.  What should I do?

Tickets ordered 10 or fewer days before the concert are placed in Will Call instead of being mailed. These tickets may be picked up the day-of the concert, beginning at 10:00 a.m. with a valid photo i.d. They are also available for you to pick-up when the gate opens in the evening.
