The Arthur “Smokestack” Hardy Fire Museum – It’s rare that a museum is as specific — and as heartfelt — as this one, which honors Baltimore’s first African-American firefighter (and the founder of the first black firefighters’ club in the nation).

Housed in the front room of a West Baltimore rowhouse, the museum uses Hardy’s store to tell stories of civil rights, the Great Fire of 1904, and the history of black Baltimore. Caveat: This museum is in someone’s house, so you’ve got to call ahead; to visit, call Guy Cephas at 443-919-9310.
