Great to see all the industry of Baltimore but the space was not filled. Lots of room for events inside and out but that's not what I came for. Was surprised to hear that they will be putting up a video game exhibit. Not sure what that has to do with Baltimore's industry. Should be somewhere else. You can see... More

Don't hesitate! Go visit! The museum is well done, interactive and well maintained. But definitely take advantage of the included free tour. Our guide demonstrated many of the machines on display, something you wouldn't see on a self guided tour. The tour is about 45 minutes and includes not only demonstrations of the machines but narrative history of the Baltimore... More

We had a few extra hours before our flight, so decided to stop in based on a recommendation from our harbor cruise the day before. This museum goes on & on: we could have stayed for 2 more hours! We lucked into there being a docent lead tour starting when we arrive, which was excellent (always use a docent if... More

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
