The city's native son, the Great Bambino, is celebrated in the house he was born in, now a museum stocked with memorabilia like the catcher's mitt he used while learning baseball, the bat from his famed 1927 season and exhibits honoring the Orioles.

Babe Ruth

Interesting to see where Babe Ruth was born. It was a nice to visit. I think if someone is interested in Babe Ruth then this place is one you might want to visit

If you're a baseball fan you cannot miss to visit this place. All sorts of information and memorabilia on Babe Ruth's life. We enjoyed a lot the video of his "called shot". There is also a short documentary on the history of the Star Spangled Banner's use at ballparks. Interesting.

I had a couple hours to burn until I had to be at my production job site. My colleague suggested I check out the area by the baseball park. I got off at the handy light rail stop and first went into the Maryland sports museum. As part of that admission was the Babe Ruth museum. I'm a big Babe... More

Wondeful museum, if you're into baseball & the Babe! Small entrance fee is well worth paying to see this historical site. You almost feel the Babe's ghost as you walk through the exhibit and have a chance to to hear his voice through old movies and radio appearances. Wonderful museum for young & old baseball fans!

If you are a baseball fan at all, why would you not want to visit the Babe Ruth Birthplace and Museum? Very nice displays of the Babe's life in a well-maintained building. Parking is limited nearby so try to arrive early. The Museum building has been very nicely renovated and updated. Watch the video first before checking out the display... More

I'm not sure that this is the actual site of Babe Ruth's birth, but it is interesting to any baseball fan. They have several videos of Babe's feats and a film about the history of The Star Spangled Banner and baseball. There are also many displays of memorabilia from his career.

Located just around the corner from Camden Yard, but is closed for renovations til June 12th, 2015. The area isn't as scary as I expected after reading reviews, but still not the best area.

We were warned, by our waiter, NOT to ride the free Charm City bus to this location because the drop off is quite a walk, and it's in a dangerous neighborhood. I called the museum and they said the same. They are safe because they are fenced in, but you must have a car, or take a cab that brings... More

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
