The city's native son, the Great Bambino, is celebrated in the house he was born in, now a museum stocked with memorabilia like the catcher's mitt he used while learning baseball, the bat from his famed 1927 season and exhibits honoring the Orioles.

Not very many Babe Ruth mementoes (saw one bat he used) but it is his birthplace and some of the rooms made to look like they were when he was born. Large printed stoyboards make up much of the "museum" and a Lone Ranger Display since the Babe would have listened to the radio show(??) Would not say it was... More

The Babe ruth birthplace is a must experience and see. I am a huge New York Yankees fan. My family visit here every time we are in Baltimore. This is awesome for any baseball fan or historian.

As other reviewers have stated, it is not a large building but the quality of the displays and memorabilia makes up for it. Enjoyed the video on the star spangled banner as well as all of the information I learned about Babe Ruth over his lifetime. Loved seeing all the signed baseballs and items used by Ruth. Worth a visit... More

7 year old future ball player loved it from the baseballs on the sidewalk to the stair railings made of bats to the statistics of the Babe (this little guy loves statistics also!). He got a small bat with Babe Ruth's signature that he carried over to the ballpark to have his picture taken with the statues. Enjoyable.

This is a small,. but revealing look at Babe Ruth's life. I don't want to get too specific because there are things there that many fans do not know about Babe Ruth, but I can promise that they will not be disappointed. It is within walking distance of Camden Yard, and reasonably priced. It would be an excellent place to... More

Four stars because it is small and costs more than it should. Still worthwhile though. Built out of the actual birthplace home of Babe it explores his entire life. The original house is somewhat rebuilt and the museum itself is larger and built around the front of the partially rebuilt house. Some original pieces of furniture and the house remain... More
