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

Never had been before and really enjoyed it. Didn't know so many things were associated with Baltimore.

The museum has an enormous amount of information within its walls. The history of business in Baltimore is traced from the beginning of canning to today. The exhibits are excellent and well explained

Great attention to detail, expansive displays, frequent tours with meaningful commentary. A bit pricey.

I had heard that this was a neat little gem in Baltimore and was pretty good for kids; however I wasn't too impressed. There were tons of really neat antiques, but I found a lot of the labels missing or unclear (the machine might be named, but no explanation of how it functioned). There was no one available to answer... More

Surprisingly fun museum, even better with the free guided tour. Provided an interesting look at many of the industries that grew up in and helped grow Baltimore, many of which have since moved on or closed down. Conveniently located near the Inner Harbor area, there is plenty of free parking and plenty to see. There are hands on items for... More

The highlight as this is written is a fantastic exhibit of photographer Aubrey Bodine's work. It should be a permanent attraction -- it's wonderful. But the rest of the BMI is well worth the trip, if you want to know anything about the ideas, industries, people, and products that made Baltimore what it is today. Tourguides are a major plus...
