Evergreen Museum & Library

Housed in a former Gilded Age mansion surrounded by Italian-style gardens, Evergreen Museum & Library is at once an intimate collection of fine and decorative arts, rare books and manuscripts assembled by two generations of the philanthropic Garrett family, and a vibrant, inspirational venue for contemporary artists. Evergreen Museum & Library offers school tours and programs for groups of 15-40 students. Reservations must be made in advance by phone. Teachers may request a pre-visit informational packet about the history of Evergreen and the Garrett family. The JHU Museums offer internships for fall and spring semesters, summer, and short-term intensive internships during January. Homewood and Evergreen staff welcomes applicants from area colleges and universities and will work with department faculty to create an appropriate course of study to suit the student's interests as well as meet the museum's needs.
