Mission Statement:

The mission of the Baltimore Museum of Industry is to collect, preserve, and interpret the industrial and technological heritage of the Baltimore region for the public, by presenting educational programs and exhibits that explore the stories of Maryland's industries and the people who created and worked in them.


The Baltimore Museum of Industry (BMI) was founded in 1977 as a project of the Mayor's Office of the City of Baltimore to preserve the City's rapidly disappearing industrial heritage. In 1981, it incorporated as a private non-profit educational institution. In May of that year, the BMI moved into the historic Platt Oyster Cannery building (c.1870) in South Baltimore. The Museum launched its first capital campaign in 1989 towards the renovation of the facility to enhance its appearance and create first-rate gallery space for its exhibits.

Went on a fourth grade field trip and it was very nice. The students really enjoyed being a part of the assembly line if oyster packing. It gave them real perspective on how life was life during that time period. We did not have a chance to really explore the rest of the museum, but it did look like it was informative. It's probably better for older children .

We went here to attend a robot competition and I'm looking to go back. Everything we have now and all the conveniences and new gadgets are a result of the Industrial Age. This museum is all about this. Displays are very interesting and relevant for all ages. Great for families. Perfect for engineering students and those that are interested in the history of technology.

Could be way better. It had a strong fly by night type of feel to it. Had potential to be so much better

Amazing museum. Tons of interactive displays and we loved the 1953 Packard car you could climb into.

As a spot to go watch fireworks on the Fourth of July it's an easy FIVE stars for sure - awesome view up close right on the waterfront.
