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.

Interesting sports history

My husband is a baseball buff, and I don't know that much about sports, but we both enjoyed this museum. There were some really interesting facts about Babe Ruth's career.

Visiting from Ohio, my family had looked up multiple historic places like Poe's home but it wasn't until we were in search of another adventure did we stumble upon the Babe Ruth Birthplace and Museum. Thanks GPS! No one was there except the curator who was very friendly and helpful and directed us down the hall to watch a short... More

I love baseball. And I'm a huge fan of the legends of Americas pastime. If your in Baltimore and love baseball, you must go see Babe Ruth's birthplace. Amazing to see the history and antiques of the game from when he played. Go early as the house is small and can get crowed. Don't miss the 10-15 minute film on... More

Small converted row home now provides a peek into the early life of Babe Ruth. Artifacts, pictures and videos adorn the walls bringing you back to a bygone era. Not more than an hour tops!

This was very enjoyable--lots of facts and info on Babe and on baseball in general. Also, artifacts from his family there in the furnished "home" so it makes it something for men and ladies alike. Liked traveling through at your own pace.

One can see this place in about thirty minutes and still get a good overall of his influence on the game of baseball. The entrance fee is reasonable but certainly reflects the time one spends here. This is not meant to be a bad review but generally what you get when you pay for it! Very small gift shop as... More

Was unaware of this hidden gem in Baltimore. From Camden Yards you can follow the trail of 60 baseballs painted on the sidewalk that will take you to the row house where the Babe was born. The trail will also take you past a statue of Jackie Robinson. After arriving at the house you will be offered an unforgettable experience... More

Having recently made a trip to the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum, this was a wonderful follow-up. Obviously not nearly the same in size, the birthplace and museum is still tastefully put together and neatly displayed. There are some amazing artifacts here - a bat use by Shoeless Joe Jackson, the ball Ruth homered with on the (alleged)... More

If you're going to Camden for a ballgame or just in Baltimore, a visit to the Babe's birthplace is a very cool experience whether you are a baseball fan or not. The Babe was bigger than just baseball and the memorabilia here is well worth the visit. If I remember correctly I held bats used by The Babe and Jackie... More
