Fun, Cool Venue

Great for a theme party (very Baltimore inside!). It's waterfront, great exhibits to walk through while having a catered event. I've been here several times for events and LOVE it.

I attended a business dinner here last week. The setting was even better than the dinner or the program. I need another visit to do justice to the rooms off the main hall; the demands of the occasion limited the time I had so I had to confine myself to the smaller displays. All of them were well done, presenting... More

Business reception at the museum at night. A lot to see, and beautifully displayed. Many rooms to walk through and many things to see. A print shop, pictures of classic factories. Many companies that made the area successful.

What a very interesting museum! It had lots of great exhibits for manufacturing and industry. The tour was definitely a must. Plenty of parking and not too far out of downtown.

I suggest you go on a Saturday when you can get the history explained by docents. Each area is reconstructed as if from the era. The grocery store, printers, clothing makers, welders, canners, etc all so authentic. And when the docents explain the history and experience the place comes alive.

Very captivating to see how folks lived and worked not that long ago. Took the tour and was glad I did. Just so very interesting. Old workshops and storefronts are an education for everyone, we've come so far in such a short time it just makes you feel better. Especially at this time.
