This was so fun. Lots of Babe Ruth memorbilia, interactive displays, and a movie. Spent well over an hour here. Bought souvineers in the gift shop. Well worth the $10.00 fee.

When you think Baltimore and baseball the first thing that probably pops up in your head is the wonderful stadium called Camden Yards. But there’s another great stop for baseball fans while visiting Baltimore - Babe Ruth’s Birthplace and Museum. Located walking distance from Camden...More
