Trip Advisor A gem of a sports museum
Dec 08, 2014 by: Ed S from Denver, Colorado
As someone who grew up in Maryland but moved away before this museum opened, I have to acknowledge what a really nice touch this gave to the history of sports in Baltimore. The extensive sections on the Orioles and Colts explained not just what was interesting about their history but why it was important to the city. (The Orioles Hall of Fame section could suck you in for 30 minutes on its own, and you wouldn't regret it.) But the museum also gets huge kudos for its extensive history of Negro League baseball in the city and its documentation of the other sports teams, from collegiate champions to the indoor-soccer franchise. This is a must-see for area residents, and for outside sports fans, it's a great way to understand a city's relationship to its teams.



Trip Advisor Good for baseball fans and Baltimore fans

You might think this is a great museum for all sports fans, but it really caters specifically to baseball history and teams in Baltimore. If neither interest you, then it would be a waste. On the main level you'll see a lot of memorabilia, pictures, and news casts of Babe Ruth, Brooks Robinson, Cal Ripken Jr, and other big Orioles names. When you go downstairs, you are able to see more memorabilia from minor league teams, University of Maryland sports, and other Baltimore native sportsmen. This area is more kid friendly and hands on. As you move back up to the main level, there is a small exhibit on the Ravens. I would save an hour to an hour and a half for this museum. **If you are staying at the Hampton Inn Convention Center across the street, then you get 50% off admission. Other close hotels may have similar discounts so just ask.

Good all around Baltimore sport museum. But just as a sports fan I enjoyed it. Plan to spend at least an hour to hour and a half if you want to read and experience everything.



Trip Advisor Nice & Interesting

We were at a great party here for our accountant's 25th year anniversary. It was a great place for a party - as well as so nice for the great individual. We got a chance to review all the attractions of the museum. Although not originally from Baltimore, we enjoyed many of the highlights. We were extremely impressed by the Jackie Robinson display - especially having been born in Brooklyn. It was a great tribute to him from a great town that we are fortunate to be near.



Trip Advisor A must-see for sports fans visiting Charm City

Johnny Unitas and Brooks Robinson played in this sports-crazed town and their spirits live in this historic converted train station adjacent to Oriole Park at Camden Yards. The blue collar sports fan of the glory years of the Colts and the O's will revel in the displays and exhibits in this well designed museum that honors the greats of the sports arenas, past and present. Combine this with a walk through Babe Ruth's Birthplace Home and Museum and you'll be wishing that #19 was still taking a snap and #5 was still manning the hot corner.
