This is a very nice little museum. And it is a 'little' Baltimore townhouse that has been revived and turned into a museum to commemorate the birthplace of Babe Ruth. It's privately-run, so there is a $10 entrance fee but I think anyone interested in baseball will certainly consider that a small price to pay to see a genuine bit of history. I guess more than a dozen people would be a crowd for this little museum. Fortunately it's located on a quiet side street just west of Camden Yards by a few steps, so it's an easy walk to or from an Orioles game. Plan on a half an hour to 45 minutes to explore the little house and the museum displays inside. And to extend the history a little bit, there is some archaeology you can find on the web to indicate that the location of Babe Ruth's father's saloon now lies somewhere below centerfield in Oriole Park.

Nice little museum. Anyone who is a fan of baseball in general or Babe Ruth in particular would enjoy it. As others have said, its small so you can see everything in an hour or less.

Interesting museum full of Babe Ruth and baseball artifacts! Great knowledgeable staff that are passionate about what they do! A must see stop on a Oriels Gameday. Pick up a Baby Ruth bar while you're there!

Another “I’m not a die-hard baseball fan” but this little birthplace/museum is a true hidden gem in Baltimore. I happen to hit it during Dollar Days weekend in December where a lot of the key attractions in Baltimore were only 1$, but I’d gladly had paid the normal cost of admission. Lots to see, and a lot of history here, so take your time and browse through it all. The short 7-minute film “The Star Spangled Banner in Sports” was very interesting and well worth watching. And the gift shop is loaded with great souvenirs. This is well worth the visit!!!
