The Museum of Industry is amazing and it is for all ages. We hosted an event there and were so pleased. From the moment that you call to research your dates to the conclusion of the event it is a great experience.

I went with my husband and two teenage sons. We spent over an hour and everybody agreed it was a very educational and enjoyable experience. Lot of hand-on exhibits, with objects, videos and photos to teach you about the impressive industrial history of Baltimore.

This is a small to medium museum; it takes about 1 1/2 to 3 hours to see. Admission is $12 for adults. Take the "Banner" circulator bus from the Inner Harbor as it's a long walk. The bus will drop you one block away and...More
