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.

A small but really nicely presented museum that is very informative about all things Ruth. A must-see on a Baltimore trip.

If you are a baseball fanatic you must see this house. They have a short film and everything. Its $10 per person but OMG!! The BAMBINO lived here.

This place is an easy walk from Camden yards. It has some Babe Ruth memorabilia along with one of the Babe's bats. It was a bit warm inside in May. Our young boys enjoyed the visit. Expect about an hour to review everything.

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
