If you're American then you must love baseball, right? It was so cool walking thru the home where Babe Ruth was born. From the room he was actually born in to various items he's accommodated in his time, you can't help but feel the love and honor of baseball. Such a cool experience!

The price I thought as a couple dollars too much, but the museum was quite good. There are several short films throughout worth the time to watch them including the "called shot" from the 1932 World Series. The museum consists of the historic home where the Babe was born, but did not live. There is not too much information on... More

This was the first time we'd had a couple days on our own in Baltimore so this was a must-see for us. Well done exhibits, great staff, good visit.

This museum is great for baseball fans. The exhibits highlight Oriole history and give the family background on why it is the Oriole Way.

As an Aussie, we have limited knowledge of Babe Ruth and baseball but this was a very interesting and informative museum of the man and his life. Worth a visit if you have time and are interested in the abilities of extraordinary people that have made history.

It's been over 20 years since I was here last. They have renovated and enlarged the museum. Wow great pics, history etc....it'll take maybe an hour to go through. The staff was great!

Even though the museum is small and a little cheesy, there are some one of a kind artifacts Babe fans must see. All the old movie footage and sound bites are great. And to see the size of the family home is eye opening. How could families live in a twelve and a half foot wide home? There's not a... More

Nice little museum, worth the visit. Parking is nearby, there is a small lot that has some reserved for Babe Ruth museum signs. I believe on Pratt street. Fair price for admission, can see short film and enjoy the pieces on display...bats, signed balls, etc. Kids liked it too.

Followed the baseballs on the sidewalk after visiting Camden Yards Stadium. Short easy walk of maybe 3-4 blocks. Museum has little fact boards and memorabilia of Babe Ruth. Short video about the National Anthem was worth viewing and staff very friendly.

Follow the white baseballs from Camden yards to get there. Lots of info on the bambino. Short movies and history. The Camden yards tour is better value as they both cost $9. You get $1 off the museum if you show your ticket from Camden yards.
