Really enjoyed this. Not large, but only $4 for a senior. Had a nice short movie on the Star Spangled Banner at the 1918 World Series . (worth looking this up in Wikipedia). Several small rooms, but learned a lot about Babe Ruth. A nice little gift shop as well

Short walk from Camden Yards and an enjoyable visit. Lots to learn of Babe's life, lore and fame! Short movie and an interesting gift shop. Mini hall of fame type exhibit.

My dad and I went to this Museum in July of 2011. We had a great time. It was only a short walk from Camden Yards, and any baseball fan will highly enjoy it!

This is a must visit for any sports fan. It's in a beautiful row how not far from Camden Yards. The house features some great baseball history and amazing memorabilia. The smaller setting is nice and you can squeeze in a quick visit without upsetting the others in your party, if they aren't as excited about the house as you.... More

To start off with, I am not a huge baseball/Babe Ruth fan but my husband is so we and a few friends went. My husband, the fan, described it as ok. It was nice to walk through and actually see all of Ruth's achievements and history. What was more interesting to me was the actual home and the antique artifacts/furniture... More

The birthplace of Babe Ruth, the greatest and most famous baseball player of all time. He was responsible for putting baseball on the map. This is a must see for any knowledgeable baseball fan. The building is small, but has a lot of interesting items, including furniture. My only question is why some people here have given a bad review?... More

A must for baseball fans! A lot of Babe Ruth packed into one little museum. Learn why we sing the National Anthem before each game. And walk the floors where the Babe once lived.

The museum is a few "tricky" blocks from the stadium, but follow the baseballs on the sidewalk & you'll be there! It costs $6 for adults, small attraction but it has some interesting items, a video regarding how the Star Spangled Banner became a part of the game, nice history also. Also has a small gift shop and a single... More

My husband wanted to go to the Sports Museum so we purchased a Groupon that included admission to that and the Babe Ruth Museum. This was very interesting to see - and we were there during the anniversary of the Star Spangled Banner, so that video and history was interesting as well. If you're a baseball fan, this is a...
