Small, but interesting and a "must do" for Babe Ruth fans

Relatively easy to get to, located ~ 1/2 mile from Camden Yards. We went on a Saturday afternoon and parking was easy- parked in metered parking ($1/hr) right in front of the museum. It is very small. According to the time on our meter, we were in the museum for 52 minutes. But it's interesting and tastefully done. There is a nicely done movie that plays every 15 minutes or so about the history of the Star Spangled Banner related to baseball and Babe Ruth. You also get to see the very room Babe Ruth was born as well as several autographed baseballs and more. Admission is $6/adult, which I thought was very reasonably priced. Kids are free (not sure what age they start charging, but my son is 6yo and he was free).
Conveniently Located Near Camden Yards

Babe Ruth Birthplace and Museum is a place that every baseball fan should visit. It is conveniently located near Oriole Park at Camden Yards. My fiancé and I walked to the museum before going to an Orioles game this past July. It was neat to see all the Babe Ruth memorabilia and pictures. The price of admission is very inexpensive, under $10. The people who work there are super friendly and very informative. People of all ages will enjoy learning the history of arguably baseball's biggest and most beloved icon.

Babe Ruth birthplace is so easy to get to. It's only 6 dollars for adults and only took us about an hour to get through. It was really interesting and well worth it. The two guys who were working were very nice and extremely informed.
Baseball fan must

If you like baseball you need to go through this house. While not huge there were interesting facts about Babe in his younger years while playing for the then minor league Orioles. Also had great information about how the Star Spangled Banner ended up being sung at sporting events.
Worth an hour of time! Interesting history

This museum is only a few blocks from Camden Yards and easy to find. Just follow the painted baseballs on the sidewalk. I think it cost about $7.00. The home has some of the original furniture, and you get a good sense of what life was like in the early part of the 20th century. It also has a lot of information about his time at St. Mary's and his rise to national fame. The staff at the front was helpful and willing to answer questions about the exhibit. Worth the cost of admission.
