Love the babe

Had to look hard to find this. Surprised it was such a nice house, considering Babe was dumped off on society when he was only 7 and never returned home. Who does that?

As important as visiting the National Baseball Hall of Fame.There are few of us who so tower over everyone else who can be said to " The Best " not simply of their time but of all time. A stone throwaway from Camden Yards and one you must go and see. The museum also includes a look at the sports... More

Worth a stop if you're in the area. Not the most amazing place in the world, but totally convenient for all the baseball nuts who would be going to Camden Yards anyway.

If you are a baseball fan, this is a must see! Very well put together museum. Only took us half hr but you could obviously spend a good hr or more. Only a few blocks from Camden Yards. The attendant there was very nice and helpful! Inexpensive also :)

I have been several times, but little has changed in the past 3 years. One addition was a film about the National Anthem in Sports. My boys (new baseball fans) went for the first time and had a ball...

It was just amazing for us to visit this museum. The layout was awesome and it was cool to have some videos included. A few rooms were laid out like they might have been when The Babse was born in 1894, and they were very nice in greeting us in a freidnly open manner. Recommended!

If you are a baseball fan it is a stop not to be missed. We walked from the Ball park tour at Camden Yards. Do-able. We did the combo visit with the Sports Legend Museum

I did not know that this was in Baltimore. Thankfully I saw a brochure in our hotel--we were able to walk to the museum and had a wonderful time. The movie is a must see for all!!!
