“I love it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

An outside the box museum that brings the past to life in so many ways for all ages. They have exhibits that are presented in such a way as to take you back in time so that you can imagine when a trip to DC took all day or more, and appreciated the challenges of building the initial infrastructure of the USA

“Worth the Trip!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013 via mobile

Fascinating museum on the industrial role played by Baltimore. Could easily spend a whole afternoon here. Military discount.

“Good Guided Tour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

A well rounded educational experience about the history of industry in this area from over the past two hundred years. One can spend hours here but the informative, knowledgable and well read tour guide saved us hours from checking this place out. His dry sense of humour was over the heads of the children in attendance but his involvement of them in the various inactive learning station made it understable for them. They have a small gift shop and an educational room set a side for school groups during the school year. Located on the waterfront and one can see the Baltimore Inner Harbour. Currently they have a special exhibit about the forty years of the Maryland Lottery which was recently featured on a local TV station. This place is certainly worth the reasonable admission price! Very family friendly.

“Ask for AAA discount”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013 via mobile

Really interesting museum. We went on a Saturday, which is probably the best day to go because live demonstrations and guided tours are available. If you can't get the tour, watch the introductory movie near the door you come in, which covers done of the same highlights and other iterates that you won't catch just walking through on your own. The printing / linotype demonstration (only on Saturdays) was terrific. Our boys (12 and 13) loved it. They also do programs for groups, Scouts, etc. if arranged in advance.

“Worth a second trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

We visited this medium-sized, fascinating museum, but only had two hours to spend. Our friendly tour guide was excellent, and provided a good overview. My wife particularly enjoyed learning about the garment industry, and reflecting on the "unskilled" labor provided by women and children in bygone days. My favorite was the working Linotype machine, operated by a volunteer life-long expert from the Baltimore Sun newspaper. We will return again to delve deeper into how our ancestors made a living.
