Baltimore Sun’s BEST party in 2 weeks

PASSPORT FOR KIDS:That's not a typographical error....



That's not a typographical error. Rather, it's a deal to broaden the historical perspective of your kids (and you, too), drawing from 21 sites that, give or take, are all, more or less, Around the Inner Harbor.

For youngsters 16 and under, you can buy a new ticket called the "Baltimore History Alliance Pastport" -- giving each user free admission to historic sites and museums throughout Baltimore. The cost is $5. Pastports are available at these museums and other attractions, where they can be used until Dec. 31:

The B&O; Railroad Museum, Babe Ruth Birthplace and Museum, Baltimore City Life Museums, Baltimore Public Works Museum, Eubie Blake Cultural Center, Evergreen House, Homewood House, Maryland Historical Society, Star-Spangled Banner Flag House and 1812 Museum and the Constellation.

Also, the Baltimore Maritime Museum, the Children's Museum, Edgar Allan Poe House, Fort McHenry, Great Blacks in Wax Museum, Jewish Historical Society of Maryland, Lovely Lane Museum, Mount Clare Mansion House, Nine North Front Street and the Old Otterbein United Methodist Church.

Information: the Baltimore History Alliance, 727-4808.


The Capitan Miranda, a 205-foot Uruguayan schooner, will be open for free visits from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. daily through Monday at the Inner Harbor west wall. The ship is a training vessel for the Uruguayan Naval Academy in Montevideo.

Built in Cadiz, Spain, in 1930, the Capitan Miranda originally was a survey vessel. The ship was rerigged and refitted in 1978 and logs 10,000 sea miles yearly. Alternative music, children's music and puppets will be featured at the Inner Harbor next week.
