We went there without any expectation because it's one of the museums in Baltimore we had not tried yet. We were pleasantly surprised. Take the free tour. It takes about 1 hour and the guide will operate some of the machines for you and get the kids involved. The whole family enjoyed it. It is also a great representation of... More

Name the industry, any industry. Yup, they have a display. Some displays are more interesting than others, but that is not unusual. Some displays are a bit more interactive then others. The most interactive is the build your own video game. A great learning activity. I have to admit that I did not finish all the stations to complete my... More

We had a Certifikid to this museum and chose a rainy Saturday afternoon to make the trek up to B'more. Worth it!! It is not a big museum, but there is something for everyone. It is in an old canning factory, so lots of artifacts from that, as well as a real blacksmith, video game exhibit, printer, old-timey cars, and... More

This museum displayed and explained all the different types of industry and businesses that have flourished in Baltimore. The museum was quite interesting with some interactive aspects too. There were workers in metal foundry making jewelery and doing demonstrations on how the machines worked. Our favorite part was the print shop. Printing was a very large industry in Baltimore and...

We were lucky that a tour guide was available when we got to the museum and thus had an excellent tour of 4 major industries and machinery. We were greeted by a super friendly and helpful staffer. The museum had lots of interesting exhibits. True - some of them have nothing to do with industry but on balance it was... More

I have been here for two events. Both events were great, but I'm not so sure I would take my kids here or go here without a reason. The exhibits weren't too interactive. But it is a beautiful place to see the Harbor and get your historical fix. Great for those loving engineering or a history of industry in general.

Beautiful location. A friend held her wedding here and It was the coolest experience to be able to roam the halls during the reception. Beautiful view off the pier!

Great museum to visit on a rainy day. Easily reached from Inner Harbor. Museum is filled with information and presentations on what made Baltimore the city it is today. Boat building, canning, fishing, oyster harvest, retail - it's all here. Kids won't get too impatient because there is a variety of things to see and touch, plus it's easily seen... More

Lovely view outside the museum. We had a business convention in the evening at the museum. We ate hors d'oeuvre outside overlooking the harbor which was beautiful. The museum is very interesting and learned a lot about the history of Baltimore. Very rich history. Friendly staff.
