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.

A small museum, but a lot of important memorabilia for the baseball historian and fan. Lots of displays pertaining to Ruth’s life and career. Lots of on street parking. Easy to find and a great way to spend an hour or two.

This is a really nice little museum. I felt that it was reasonably priced. I’d say we were there for less than an hour. We were hoping for a few more souvenirs to choose from. Other than that, it met our expectations. I’d recommend visiting.

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.
