Surratt House Museum

9118 Brandywine Road


Surratt House Museum is dedicated to fostering an appreciation for the history and culture of 19th-century Maryland and Prince George's County with special emphasis on the crucial years from 1840 to 1865. It will seek to interpret the impact of this period on our national history as well as on the family of John and Mary Surratt who became entangled in the web of conspiracy surrounding the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln. Continuing research in the field will be encouraged, and the museum will serve as an educational bridge between scholars, staff (both professional and volunteer) and guests as we seek to understand the times and the people of this era.

I took my kids (12F, 9F, and 9 month M). We had a great time. My father lives less than a mile away, so I decided we should visit. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. My family was the only group on the tour at the time and the guide kept it entertaining and informative. He answered all of our questions. If you like to learn about American history, this would be a great stop.

If you don't already know the entire story, then don't visit. Not much information given. A 'few' nice touches, but, no really worth the time to visit.

I’m a rehab therapist and I took a group of folks there today with disabilities and they did a great job accommodating us. The guide kept us entertained , the management treated us like friends and the house was decorated with great detail true to it’s history. I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a professional tour tucked in an easy to get to location. I left wanting to know more about local history with books in hand. A gem!
