The BWI Observation Gallery re-opened on July 19, 2013. It is located on the upper level of the airport between Concourses B and C prior to the security checkpoint and is open to the public. It features new aviation exhibits, children’s play equipment and an updated Maryland Youth Art Gallery. The BWI Marshall Observation Gallery also features other passenger amenities including charging stations and the new Sky Azure cocktail lounge. Sky Azure is an 800-square-foot food and beverage concession that offers small plates along with a broad selection of local craft beers, international wines, and hand-crafted cocktails.
Near the Observation Gallery is the Thurgood Marshall Tribute, an interesting exhibit of the life of one of the country's leading civil rights activists.
The meditation room, located on the upper level between Concourses D and E, offers a quiet place to relax.
BWI Marshall offers a variety of dining and shopping options that are worth exploring. Please see the Shop & Dine map for locations.
The historic Benson Hammond House is located on a corner of the airport grounds. The house is on the National Registry of Historic Places.
The BWI bike trail is a good place to get outside and stretch your legs. Click for more information. A bike rack is located just outside the international terminal, close to the light rail station where a spur of the BWI Bike Trail meets the airport terminal.
