The city's native son, the Great Bambino, is celebrated in the house he was born in, now a museum stocked with memorabilia like the catcher's mitt he used while learning baseball, the bat from his famed 1927 season and exhibits honoring the Orioles.

My husband is a baseball fan so we stopped here and because of the size of it, we were really not expecting it to be as interesting, informational, and so well done! The building looks small but there is plenty of Babe Ruth memorabilia and...More

A "must see" for baseball fans. A true piece of history! Came with my husband, 13 year old, and 6 year old. We spent about an hour and a half here. Definatley worth the stop!

This is a small museum but its packed full of interesting things, and it's only a few blocks from the stadium. Lots of Babe Ruth, baseball and local history in one place. It's nice this little homage to a local born hero, even though he...More

You cannot be a baseball fan if you come to Baltimore and miss this. It is only 2 blocks from the ballpark. It is a shrine to one of the greatest players ever. There really isn't a lot of original house inside if you're looking...More

We were staying at the Hampton and decided to tour this before heading home. It was definitely worth the stop and it had lots of great memorabilia. The gentleman working there was very kind and knowledgeable about the Museum.

The military discount saves you about $2. Free parking. The guy at the desk was really pushy and there wasn’t a whole lot in the museum. Small gift shop in the front.

There is a back entrance which doesn't have stairs and an elevator. The website has a place to contact the museum and also a phone number so call and make sure.
