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 two dozen people would be a crowd for this little museum. Fortunately it's located on a quiet side street just west of Camden Yards buy 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.

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!!!

This was a great experience for our family. We drove from Lancaster, PA. For a smaller museum, they have a decent amount of baseball and Babe Ruth memorabilia and exhibits. There is a reasonable gift shop, the exhibits are well designed and some are interactive.

This is a great little museum. It is a must visit for any baseball fan. It would be a 5 Star if the museum was bigger.

Cool place. A lot of history there. Okay if you’re in the area but don’t go out of your way. $10 admission was a bit steep but it was cool to experience it at least once.
