As a native Baltimorean I thoroughly enjoyed strolling down memory lane and learning facts that I did not know about my birthplace city. The guided tour was very informative and included demonstrations about how the various machines operated. Industries included canning, garment making, print making, and blacksmithing. Another part of the museum included exhibits about Baltimore's "firsts" (first city street... More

We took our 10 year old son here on a Sunday afternoon and he just loved it! He learned so much and my husband and I also thoroughly enjoyed learning more about the history of Baltimore.

We really enjoyed the museum. There was so much to learn about Baltimore and industry. We were able to take a guided tour and then go back and read all the exhibits. It took about 3 hours to complete and it was well worth it.

This museum is a very informational place. You will learn about how the first traffic light was made! Things we take for granted are shared at this museum.

We had the absolute pleasure of visiting this museum while attending a wedding. It was wonderful! My husband and I probably learned about U.S. industry in Baltimore as young children or maybe even in high school but neither of our higher learning paths were centered on industry so this was a good reminder. The exhibits were vibrant, interesting, informative with... More

This museum is a must see in Baltimore. Plan on 3 hrs to see everything. Price was reasonable for admission. This museum is recommended for anyone willing to learn about Baltimore's history and industry products. Very kid friendly. Step back into time at this museum.

As long as I have lived in Baltimore, 40 years, last summer was my first visit to the BMI. Parking is free and plentiful. The museum has lots to see and do. It is a great place for the kids. There are kids workshops inside. The view is absolutely wonderful. I do not see the exhibits changing too much, but... More

My wife and I decided to have our wedding reception here and it was absolutely amazing, stunning and magnificent! The museum itself is ok but when the main room is decorated for a banquet, etc, it's truly stunning. The view of the inner harbor is second to none expecially at night. If you ever have a chance to go to... More

I got married here, so am arguably biased. It has a beautiful view of the harbor and the Domino's Sugar sign. If you get an excuse to visit at night, there is nothing like it! The museum itself is decent, but not too exciting.
