This is an interesting and easy museum to tour. The staff is friendly and informative. Self touring gives you all the time you need to take in all the exhibits. Loaded with wonderful history!

This is located on the far side of Baltimore's harbor. But you can drive here easily or take the water taxi. The exhibits change so I haven't see the latest one, but I have seen many. Provides a great view of the harbor and skyline.

I’m not disagreeing with the other reviews it’s just that I expected more. The museum was very clean and parking was onsite but given the history of industry in the Baltimore area the displays lacked depth.

This museum is a hidden gem, off the beaten path of main stream tourism around Baltimore's Inner Harbor. It's small, clean, easy to navigate and full of incredible history, but the true highlight for us was a young man of 90 years named Raymond, who...More

One of the best parts of this museum is learning about all the firsts Baltimore can claim. I won't spoil the fun, but one of the surprises was that Head skis made the first all-metal skis here. Who knew?

The BMI is a fascinating testimony to "real Baltimore" — the working class muscle of the Mid-Atlantic. I knew of some of the inventions the world owes to Baltimore — the beer and soda bottle cap, those blue-bottled nostrums Noxzema and Bromo-Seltzer — and I...More

Yes indeed! On Saturdays we offer hands-on activities, live demonstrations in some galleries and then there's our engaging video game exhibit where kids build their own game. Check our website for details.
