It's a good trip for any baseball fan. We only saw the outside and took a picture of it. They were closed the day we went but we will probably go again.

Easy to find thanks to the baseballs on the ground leading from the Sports Legends Museum (if you go to the Legends Museum you get a ticket for this included). It is quite small (as it is a house) so can get quite crowded but this didn't take anything away from my visit. Some interesting memorabilia and I particularly enjoyed... More

If you are a baseball fan, this is a must see while in Baltimore. It's a small museum, but has plenty of cool things to see from Babe Ruth's career. It's a short walk from Camden Yards (just follow the baseballs painted on the sidewalk) and is worth your time. Tip: Check Groupon for deals before you go. We were... More

It was cool seeing the house where Ruth was born. There were some short films about him playing as well as some artifacts from his life. I believe a renovation was planned, our visit was July 2013, so the renovation may be complete by now. There were a lot of great items relating to Ruth at the sports museum outside... More

This museum is in the home of Babe's Grandfather - and the room Babe was born in is carefully recreated! A great film in the visitors area - terrific selection of photos and mementos, many testimonials through out the museum. All in all, I enjoyed it very much and you will, too, if you are a baseball fan.

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
