Followed the baseballs on the sidewalk after visiting Camden Yards Stadium. Short easy walk of maybe 3-4 blocks. Museum has little fact boards and memorabilia of Babe Ruth. Short video about the National Anthem was worth viewing and staff very friendly.

Follow the white baseballs from Camden yards to get there. Lots of info on the bambino. Short movies and history. The Camden yards tour is better value as they both cost $9. You get $1 off the museum if you show your ticket from Camden yards.

The Babe Ruth museum is not just for baseball or sports fans. It offers a unique view into the times when Babe Ruth was growing up. There are multiple rooms all decorated with different furniture from those times. There is also a neat little gift shop where you can buy cool Babe Ruth era items and souvenirs. Check this place...

For anyone who enjoys history and baseball, this is a great place to visit. Interesting video of Babe Ruth's life which is then displayed through memorabilia and photos. It is within walking distance of Camden Yards, with a path of baseballs painted on the sidewalk marking the way from one to the other. Seeing both of them together made for... More

This to me was a great visit because I am a Yankee fan and thanks to Babe Ruth we won many world series; I also learned about his life which I did not know. This was a good experience.

I consider myself one, so for me it was a required stop when visiting Camden Yards. If you are just an average fan you could probably pass. Its a very short walk from the park, very easy to find and quite safe. Plan on spending about an hour there, its not that big but there are some interesting pieces of... More
