A must for baseball fans! A lot of Babe Ruth packed into one little museum. Learn why we sing the National Anthem before each game. And walk the floors where the Babe once lived.

The museum is a few "tricky" blocks from the stadium, but follow the baseballs on the sidewalk & you'll be there! It costs $6 for adults, small attraction but it has some interesting items, a video regarding how the Star Spangled Banner became a part of the game, nice history also. Also has a small gift shop and a single... More

My husband wanted to go to the Sports Museum so we purchased a Groupon that included admission to that and the Babe Ruth Museum. This was very interesting to see - and we were there during the anniversary of the Star Spangled Banner, so that video and history was interesting as well. If you're a baseball fan, this is a...

We purchased the combo pack of this museum and sports legends. Great activities to do before an Orioles game because of the close proximity. We love baseball history and history itself. Loved to see how the house looked like and babes home runs graphically displayed by year with plaques. My favorite part was the connection to the star spangled banner... More

Very informative and neat to see where Babe Ruth was born. Safe neighborhood and only 3-4 blocks from Camden Yards - Easy walk to there afterwards. Nice staff, and very helpful! Learned a lot about Babe's earlier years. Worth a visit - does not more than 45 minutes.

Great place. I am a big baseball fan and this place is a must see for any fan. The place is a bit tricky to find but worth it.

Interesting even for someone who is not a baseball fan. Went for my boyfriend's birthday because he had always wanted to see it. Definitely a short tour since it's such a small musuem. Gift shop and restrooms on site were nice. And there were several restaraunts nearby for afterwards.

A museum in The Babe's home birthplace, what could be better! And they are celebrating the 100 year anniversary this year. A good place to visit before going to Camden Yards for an Orioles game. His house is right around the corner from the park. There is a lot of memorabilia and video monitors with old, rare clips of The... More

This museum is a requirement if you are in Baltimore and are a fan of America's pasttime. A very thorough display of Babe Ruth memorabilia as well as the feeling you get while you're in the birthplace of one of the greatest athletes of all time.
