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

The elementary school went for a field trip. It's fun, but sort of expensive for what you get if you were going with your own family of four or so. Most of the museums in Baltimore are fairly expensive. There are fun things for the kids to do at the Museum of Industry. Hands on stuff, so that the kids... More

What a cool place to have a wedding! There was plenty of room for people to walk around during the cocktail hour and a large dance floor. You were able to walk through the exhibits during the event which was a bonus feature. The museum is on the water so you were able to head outside for some fresh air... More

Took the whole family ages 14-70 and everyone enjoyed the museum. All the displays were well maintained and told the story of early city life in Baltimore. Our tour guide , Jack was great and told stories at each section while running the equipment. There were smaller kids there too, and it seemed to hold their interest as well. In... More

This place is a gem! Echoing the other reviews, you can almost miss this museum for the rusty exterior, but inside it's very well done. You can enter an old grocery, a canning line, learn about fire hoses, old cars, umbrellas & build your own video game! Awesome place. Great for kids, history buffs and everyone in between.

Planned a couple day trip to Baltimore and went on Tripadvisor to find out what fun things we could do. The Baltimore Museum of Industry had really good feedback. We also found a Groupon for $19 for admission for 4 people. It wasn't crowded(went on a rainy Thursday afternoon) and the exhibits were really neat and authentic. When I walked... More

My review of the museum is mixed. My 11 year old and I enjoyed the museum. There are a lot of interesting exhibits about the history of industry in Baltimore. My 9 year old daughter hated it. From some of the prior reviews, we thought there would be a lot of hands on activities. They do have green wheelbarrows with... More

I visited the museum expecting a quick tour of a small collection. It's FULL of all sorts of artifacts that relate to Baltimore's history. I just moved to this city a few months ago, and had no idea how much this city's revolutionary changes influenced the country. From music to railroad to canneries to science to printing, I learned a... More

Sounds boring? Well, you could not be more wrong. This is a real find!!!!! So interesting for everyone, not just those from Baltimore. Such an amazing place into the past. From canning to banjo making to garment manufacturing to electronic history. It goes on and on. The displays are cleverly displayed where you can walk into actual stores set up.... More
