The Star-Spangled Banner Flag House, formerly the Flag House & Star-Spangled Banner Museum is a museum located in the Little Italy section of Baltimore, Maryland.

Built in 1793, it was the home of Mary Pickersgill when she moved to Baltimore in 1806 and the location where she sewed the "Star Spangled Banner," the garrison flag that flew over Fort McHenry in the summer of 1814 during the Battle of Baltimore in the War of 1812. The museum contains furniture and antiques from the period as well as items from the Pickersgill family.

A museum was constructed next to Pickersgill's house.

The house was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1969.
