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.

There are kids workshops inside. The view is absolutely wonderful. I do not see the exhibits changing too much, but... More

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.

This is a museum commemorating Baltimore's impressive industrial past. The museum is divided into sections on different types of industries - cannery, bakery, paint manufacturing and others. Each section discusses the history of the industry and major companies. It was interesting to read about the humble beginnings of certain companies in Baltimore that became very famous, such as Black &... More

We found the museum to be interesting with lots of exhibits that would interest ages from 5 to 90. Does have a lot of reading but there are great volunteers to add flavor

A interesting, fun place to attend a wedding. The view was incredible from our tables and it was neat how they had it set up to host a wedding. There was a lot of interesting things to walk around an look at. I enjoyed the museum and would go back just to visit
