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.

And don't hate the Yankees this is the place for you. Most don't know the Babe was born and raised here, they just think of New York or possibly Boston where he played. Nice collection and not that expensive

The family and I decided we had to see the home of a legend. Took us by surprise how such a small house accomodated such a big man:-) The video presentation was chock full of information about the Babe. Quick trip.

Visited with my son both of us big Yankee fans. Very well done, films, the usual amount of newspaper articles and other memorabilia from his past. Closes at 5:00 unless there is an Orioles home game then 7:00. Short walk to ball park.

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.
