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.

We stumbled upon this gem by accident. It doesn't take a ton of time, admission fee is reasonably priced and there is a lot of history and original artifacts. Well worth it.

A must see for baseball and Babe Ruth fans. It is a short walk around the corner from Camden Yards so perfect to visit before or after a ballgame. The museum is small. My brothers and I went through it in 20 minutes. At most...More

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.
