Museum. The National Landmarks nomination form says this of the building:

"In 1953 the city erected a one-and-one-half story dependency building behind the main house. The new building, built in the same style, conforms well with the Flag House and is connected to it by a covered breezeway. Presently called the 1812 Museum, the building contains, on the first floor, two rooms in which are placed mementos of the War of 1812 that had originally been displayed in the Flag House. Located on the second floor are the offices of the Star-Spangled Banner Flag House Association, Incorporated. This building is included in the landmark." -- National Landmark Nomination Form
