How your visit at NMD can go

  • Drop off/Pick Up – If coming by bus or in a group, the safest and quickest drop off/pick up location is the bus stop at the corner of West Lombard and South Greene Streets (522 West Lombard St, Baltimore, MD 21201). From there, you’ll be able to see our large red banner on the corner of our building, and our glass front doors situated behind the fenced-in hill. Driving separately? Check out Directions and Parking information below for more information
  • Entering the Museum – Once you make it through our glass front doors, you will be in the museum’s atrium and entrance area. The point of contact for your group should check-in at the front desk. The rest of the group can place any jackets, lunches, or other items on the tables against the brick wall if necessary, and then gather in the center of the atrium until a museum staff member arrives for the introduction and directions for your visit.
  • Touring the Museum – For both self-guided and guided tours, a museum staff member will provide an introduction and directions for the museum before your group enters the galleries. For a self-guided tour, once the introduction is complete, your group will be free to explore the museum. For a guided tour, your group will be split into manageable group sizes for the tour guides, and each tour will last about an hour going through the entire museum.
  • After the Tour – Your group will have the opportunity, if requested, to visit the gift shop (+20 mins) or eat lunch (+30-45 mins), as well as ask any questions about the museum or dentistry to a museum staff member.
