Very informative and neat to see where Babe Ruth was born. Safe neighborhood and only 3-4 blocks from Camden Yards - Easy walk to there afterwards. Nice staff, and very helpful! Learned a lot about Babe's earlier years. Worth a visit - does not more than 45 minutes.

Great place. I am a big baseball fan and this place is a must see for any fan. The place is a bit tricky to find but worth it.

Interesting even for someone who is not a baseball fan. Went for my boyfriend's birthday because he had always wanted to see it. Definitely a short tour since it's such a small musuem. Gift shop and restrooms on site were nice. And there were several restaraunts nearby for afterwards.

A museum in The Babe's home birthplace, what could be better! And they are celebrating the 100 year anniversary this year. A good place to visit before going to Camden Yards for an Orioles game. His house is right around the corner from the park. There is a lot of memorabilia and video monitors with old, rare clips of The... More

This museum is a requirement if you are in Baltimore and are a fan of America's pasttime. A very thorough display of Babe Ruth memorabilia as well as the feeling you get while you're in the birthplace of one of the greatest athletes of all time.

The Babe Ruth Birthplace and Museum has been around for quite a while and has had its ups and downs. Based on our recent visit, I would say that they are looking up right now! George Herman Ruth signed his first professional contract in 1914 at the age of nineteen. The house commemorates his birth; the museum commemorates his career.... More

Yankee Stadium may be the house that Ruth built, but he was born, raised, and learned to play baseball in Baltimore. This small row house was his birthplace. You can take a peek into The Babe's humble beginnings, the youthful problems that led to the discipline of sports, and his fame and fortune. Babe's grandfather built the original home, and... More

I had no idea that Ruth spent much of his childhood as a near-foundling living several years in a home for orphans and wayward children. The house is one of those Federal-period types with a width of two or three steps. Lots of good information about his astounding career and many vintage photographs of his life with his wife and...
