This was definitely worth a stop. There is a wonderful history of Baltimore in this place, and I was amazed at all the products that originated here. It is a bit out of the way, but well worth the time it takes to visit. A friendly staff and great views across the harbor make it a very pleasant educational experience!

Reasonably priced attraction with lots of old machines. Areas divided by industry: e.g: Printing, canning, Baking, machine shop,print shop etc. Be sure to take advantage of the free guided tour. It takes about an hour and adds so much more to the experience. Free on site parking.

This was a water taxi ride to the other side of the harbor. Amazing items from years of history. Fun, interesting place to visit

Nice to walk around in for an hour or so. They have different rooms set up with lots of history on all of the industrial aspects. Glad we stopped by!

Visited today and learned a lot from the tour guide, the specialists in the printing area and the blacksmith display. They will share knowledge and information on history , the processes used, and where to learn more!! Excellent in all respects and enjoyed by teens, too.

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
