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!

This is a must visit for any sports fan. It's in a beautiful row how not far from Camden Yards. The house features some great baseball history and amazing memorabilia. The smaller setting is nice and you can squeeze in a quick visit without upsetting the others in your party, if they aren't as excited about the house as you.... More

To start off with, I am not a huge baseball/Babe Ruth fan but my husband is so we and a few friends went. My husband, the fan, described it as ok. It was nice to walk through and actually see all of Ruth's achievements and history. What was more interesting to me was the actual home and the antique artifacts/furniture... More
