Relatively easy to get to, located ~ 1/2 mile from Camden Yards. We went on a Saturday afternoon and parking was easy- parked in metered parking ($1/hr) right in front of the museum. It is very small. According to the time on our meter, we were in the museum for 52 minutes. But it's interesting and tastefully done. There is... More

Babe Ruth Birthplace and Museum is a place that every baseball fan should visit. It is conveniently located near Oriole Park at Camden Yards. My fiancé and I walked to the museum before going to an Orioles game this past July. It was neat to see all the Babe Ruth memorabilia and pictures. The price of admission is very inexpensive,...

Babe Ruth birthplace is so easy to get to. It's only 6 dollars for adults and only took us about an hour to get through. It was really interesting and well worth it. The two guys who were working were very nice and extremely informed.

If you like baseball you need to go through this house. While not huge there were interesting facts about Babe in his younger years while playing for the then minor league Orioles. Also had great information about how the Star Spangled Banner ended up being sung at sporting events.

This museum is only a few blocks from Camden Yards and easy to find. Just follow the painted baseballs on the sidewalk. I think it cost about $7.00. The home has some of the original furniture, and you get a good sense of what life was like in the early part of the 20th century. It also has a lot... More

Museum is only a short walk from Camden Yards and Legends Museum. It is in his restored birthplace and a must for baseball fans. There is a lot of info and exhibits on the Babe's life and legends. Hubby and I are Yankee fans and this was a lot of fun on top of our visit to Camden Yards to... More

Very good and reasonably priced. Runs though the whole life of Babe Ruth. As you can expect, there are jerseys, bats, autographs, photographs all in the home of his grand parents where some rooms are kept as original as possible. It's only a small house but the two floors are open. Worth a look inside.

Really enjoyed this. Not large, but only $4 for a senior. Had a nice short movie on the Star Spangled Banner at the 1918 World Series . (worth looking this up in Wikipedia). Several small rooms, but learned a lot about Babe Ruth. A nice little gift shop as well

Short walk from Camden Yards and an enjoyable visit. Lots to learn of Babe's life, lore and fame! Short movie and an interesting gift shop. Mini hall of fame type exhibit.

My dad and I went to this Museum in July of 2011. We had a great time. It was only a short walk from Camden Yards, and any baseball fan will highly enjoy it!
