We had a few extra hours before our flight, so decided to stop in based on a recommendation from our harbor cruise the day before. This museum goes on & on: we could have stayed for 2 more hours! We lucked into there being a docent lead tour starting when we arrive, which was excellent (always use a docent if available, you'll learn so much more than just walking thru). I wish I could remember the docent's name, because she did a terrific job taking us thru the canning, machine tooling, clothing and print-shop displays. We totally ran out of time, and definitely will go back for another look.

As a native Baltimorean I thoroughly enjoyed strolling down memory lane and learning facts that I did not know about my birthplace city. The guided tour was very informative and included demonstrations about how the various machines operated. Industries included canning, garment making, print making, and blacksmithing. Another part of the museum included exhibits about Baltimore's "firsts" (first city street gas light in nation, first aluminum ski ever made, etc.). Anyone interested in industrial history, no matter where you are from will appreciate this gem. My family and I enjoyed about 2 1/2 hours there. Free parking in their own lot and reasonable admission fees makes the BMI a must see if you are visiting Baltimore.

We took our 10 year old son here on a Sunday afternoon and he just loved it! He learned so much and my husband and I also thoroughly enjoyed learning more about the history of Baltimore.

We really enjoyed the museum. There was so much to learn about Baltimore and industry. We were able to take a guided tour and then go back and read all the exhibits. It took about 3 hours to complete and it was well worth it.
We learned so much!

This museum is a very informational place. You will learn about how the first traffic light was made! Things we take for granted are shared at this museum.
