Trip Advisor Fun and educational

We LOVED this museum. It was well worth our time to go here. A step back in time to learn the history of the birth of so much industry. All our lives are touched today by the things that began in Baltimore. We are not from here and it was a special stop for us to learn about and see the great exhibits.

Wonderful place to experience the history of Baltimore. Tour guide was well versed in the history. Good for kids who want to learn.

Stopped by as an alternative to a museum on our plans that was closed. The staff told us how the place got started and some history and the exhibits were amazing collections. Each area representing canning (the original purpose of the building) to blacksmithing, printing, etc. was full of artifacts , tools and examples of the hundreds of types of things that were made in this city. So much stuff I recognized but didn't know it originated or was always made in Baltimore. Well worth the trip and the small fee. Make this a planned stop on your itinerary.

We spent a fascinating time at this museum. So many events and happenings about Baltimore is brought to life in the exhibits. Who knew about the umbrellas, the numerous industry beginnings,and all the "Firsts"?? Great way to literally walk through history and even learn from artisans working in the blacksmith shop or printing shop. Plan on 2-3 hours if you want to read and explore this great Balitmore treasure.



Trip Advisor Great visit!
