Absolutely fascinating museum! Shows just how much was made and created in Baltimore... Bendex, GM, and Noxezma to name three. The museum used to be an old oyster cannery, and there is an interesting display on 1900's child labor. Well laid out and interesting presentations....More

The museum is unique in that it focuses on the industrial history of Baltimore. It is varied and well done. Note that I volunteered here some time ago.

As someone (previously clueless about Baltimore history) doing research on Baltimore and some Baltimore ancestry, I found this place simply fascinating. I think nearly every item we use on a daily basis was invented in Baltimore! Refrigerators, air conditioning, licorice, the Sunday newspaper, canned fruit,...More
