“Truly a Shrine to the Babe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

Must be a baseball fan to truly appreciate the significance of 'the Babe'. Short walk from Camden Yards, totally safe.

“Must See for a Baseball Fan”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

Great place, and well worth the trip. In fact, worth a special trip if you are a died in the wool baseball nut. However, if you are in a mixed group with baseball nuts and lukewarm fans, there is a lack of diversity in the exhibits: not as much of interest for the non-afficionado. Still a great place. I would recommend it.

“Worth seeing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013 via mobile

Not in the best part of town. Did not feel real safe walking with wife and kids even during the day. My 12 year old loved it and the 8 year old was bored.
