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.

For all baseball fans, and especially Yankee fans, this tiny little museum is stuffed full of the Babe. It is ground zero, as George Herman Ruth was born right there. Full of memorabilia, for $10, it is a delightful way to spend an hour. Steps...More

I went twice during my few days in Baltimore. It is an absolute must for any true baseball fan. Make sure to allow plenty of time and not rush through. Especially now that the original Yankee Stadium is gone, this is the closest place you...More

A "must see" for baseball fans. A true piece of history! Came with my husband, 13 year old, and 6 year old. We spent about an hour and a half here. Definatley worth the stop!

This is a small museum but its packed full of interesting things, and it's only a few blocks from the stadium. Lots of Babe Ruth, baseball and local history in one place. It's nice this little homage to a local born hero, even though he...More

You cannot be a baseball fan if you come to Baltimore and miss this. It is only 2 blocks from the ballpark. It is a shrine to one of the greatest players ever. There really isn't a lot of original house inside if you're looking...More

There is a back entrance which doesn't have stairs and an elevator. The website has a place to contact the museum and also a phone number so call and make sure.
