Warning About the Area
Apr 18, 2015 by: JoAnn70820 from Baton Rouge, Louisiana
We were warned, by our waiter, NOT to ride the free Charm City bus to this location because the drop off is quite a walk, and it's in a dangerous neighborhood. I called the museum and they said the same. They are safe because they are fenced in, but you must have a car, or take a cab that brings you inside their gate. Sad we didn't go. But do be forewarned.

It's a good trip for any baseball fan. We only saw the outside and took a picture of it. They were closed the day we went but we will probably go again.
A must see for baseball fans

Easy to find thanks to the baseballs on the ground leading from the Sports Legends Museum (if you go to the Legends Museum you get a ticket for this included). It is quite small (as it is a house) so can get quite crowded but this didn't take anything away from my visit. Some interesting memorabilia and I particularly enjoyed the home run wall on the bottom floor. A definite recommendation for baseball fans
Must see for Baseball Fans

If you are a baseball fan, this is a must see while in Baltimore. It's a small museum, but has plenty of cool things to see from Babe Ruth's career. It's a short walk from Camden Yards (just follow the baseballs painted on the sidewalk) and is worth your time. Tip: Check Groupon for deals before you go. We were able to get a deal for Admission for 2 adults to the Babe Ruth Museum and Sports Legend Museum at Camden Yards for $12.
How do you rate seeing room where The Babe was born?

It was cool seeing the house where Ruth was born. There were some short films about him playing as well as some artifacts from his life. I believe a renovation was planned, our visit was July 2013, so the renovation may be complete by now. There were a lot of great items relating to Ruth at the sports museum outside Camden Yards. The plan was to relocate those item's to the birth place museum. I think this would greatly enhance this museum. Good stuff, just very small, less than an hour to visit.
