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.

We had a good time seeing the birthplace and lots of personal items of Babe Ruth, The King of Swat. The museum can be seen in less than an hour. The story of Babe is laid out nicely in a series of rooms featuring his small family home. The "called shot" (homer after he pointed to center field and the... More

A great little museum with baseball and historic memorabilia. It features the bedroom Babe was born in. We learned more about the Babe's life. Admission was reasonable and parking was free. Easy walk to the museum if you're in town seeing an Orioles game. It was extremely exciting to see the bat that Shoeless Joe Jackson gave Babe and the... More

We missed this on our last trip, as it closes early, but this trip was well worth it. Lots of great photos and memorabilia to see. It's a quick stop, so don't leave it out of your trip.

When you visit Camden Yards, there is a statue of Babe Ruth. Then you follow baseballs painted on the sidewalks 2-3 blocks until you find the museum. That was fun in itself! I am not huge baseball fan and don't know a lot about the history. However, I do know that Babe Ruth is still a legend so I figured... More

The way this museum is set up is really neat . They have enclosed the original house within the museum to keep it from the weather . The home is pristine . It's not expensive at all (7.00) . It's also not very big . There are some really rare things there for baseball fanatics . The street it's on... More

This museum really comes down to personal choice and how much you are a fan of the Babe and baseball. If you are a fanatic or just really into historical places than I would say make the visit - otherwise it's not that entertaining. They do have some historical memorabilia on display and you do get the opportunity of walking... More

This is a quant and moddest setting where Babe Ruth was born. Very small row house. Tight quarters and small staircase. Very cool though. $7 per adult.

Nice small museum. Inexpensive to enter. Contains a few rooms from his home growing up. Numerous pictures and artifacts and a few film clips. Not like going to Cooperstown, but definitely worth stop. I'd like to rate higher, but just not enough there to warrant.
