This museum offers exhibits about industries that were important in Baltimore, such as the canning and garment industries and also a great deal of information about the days when Boston was a major port city. An interesting view of an aspect of the city that people don't always see when they visit.

What a pleasant surprise. This museum is much larger on the inside than we expected, with more exhibits than we expected. Admission is listed as $12 for adults, with AAA we received 2-for-1. The museum has plenty of free parking on its adjacent lot. The museum is on the waterfront of the south side of the Inner Harbor. From inside... More

We enjoyed the museum very much and the staff were friendly. I was bothered by some erroneous facts in the captions, however. My 11-year old grandson knew enough about the history of engineering to point out the errors!

Pros: Reasonably priced. Adults are $12 and kids 7+ are $7. Kids 6 and under are free. I found a Living Social Deal which made everything 1/2 price, so we paid $6 for adults and $3.50 for our 7yo daughter. Parking is free and onsite. I wish I had known that - I looked on their website and it made... More

We've been here a couple times, but I must say our last visit was much more exciting. There was a Ravens home game and the place was deserted. We were led on FREE docent tours after using our LIVING SOCIAL deal to get in for basically half price. Extremely knowledgeable staff, authentic pieces, hands on exhibits for the kids. If... More

Great for a rainy day! Lots of good exhibits about the Baltimore companies that we are all familiar with - Domino Sugar, etc.

We happened to go here on Baltimore's Open Door Weekend, so entry into the museum was free. The museum is on one level and houses a lot of interesting things to look at. Make sure if you go to do a tour. It was FANTASTIC! So many interesting facts and things learned. The print shop is only run on Saturdays.... More

Arrived and got lucky that a tour was just starting--definitely do the tour if you can! Jack was awesome and definitely helped me learn more from the museum than if I were to walk through by myself. This museum is really well set-up and has a good mix of history/facts with activities/watching specialists work. As someone who recently moved to... More

I bought a groupon for two because the admission was a little too pricey for me. The staff was welcoming but pretty hands off. We received a little direction, but I would have liked a little more of an explanation about the museum and why Baltimore should be celebrated for its industries. It was a self guided tour, which was... More
