Great exhibit about the Baltimore Colts
Jan 06, 2015 by: Olly_Mayhew from New Delhi, India
Had a great time visiting here. From the UK so it was really interesting to learn all about American sport and the impact sport can have on a city. I had a really good chat with a friendly man at the front desk about NFL teams relocating and then found the part of the museum dedicated to the relocation of the Baltimore Colts fascinating and quite emotional. Would definitely recommend it for big sports fans.
Fun for Sports Fans
Jan 04, 2015 by: JandJ618 from Texas
This museum is fun for any sports fan, not just those from Baltimore. It has a lot of interesting tidbits about the history of the city and how the sports teams are woven into the city and state. For someone not from the area, I learned a great deal about the history of the Orioles, Ravens, and other teams that have been part of Baltimore from time to time. Tip: Check Groupon for deals before you go. We were able to get a deal for Admission for 2 adults to the Sports Legend Museum at Camden Yards and Babe Ruth Museum for $12.
History of Baltimore sports
Dec 27, 2014 by: Justin W from York, Pennsylvania
The history of sports is engraved into our very culture. Legends from old have their names spoken of 25, 30, even 40 years after finishing playing their names are still familiar to us. The Sports Legends Museum honors those fine players and what they did. In a fine detailed display the history of Baltimore sports comes back to you. The museum has videos, pictures and things from their past stadiums, (such as tickets and banners) to Baltimore's old sports back to life. The details are great as you learn the history or not only the Orioles and Ravens, but of the minor leagues, negro leagues, college teams, the Colts, and or course local legend and Baltimore native Babe Ruth. How the teams worked, where they played. The Orioles hall of fame is within the museum and features displays to best of the black and orange. The interactive displays are great. Call the bull pen, dress like a baseball or football player, make a in game call. Overall the museum is a great experience of past and present. Learn about the history of Baltimore sports, interact, learn what it takes to make a team tick. Past and present the museum has it all.
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.
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.
