Being female I didn't think I'd find much of interest but was pleasantly surprised! My son had a class assignment based on a museum that he had to complete which led us here. We wandered, read and learned interesting sports facts along the way. Sports names that we've heard over the years we finally were able to put a face with them and also learn what made them legends. Can't wait to take my husband and other 2 children there.

I would say you have to really love the game of baseball and it's history to enjoy this place. The Star Spangled Banner film was great.

Go there first and then to the sports museum so you don't have to back track and walk so much:)

From Our Editors

A long fly ball from Oriole Park could hit the row house where, on February 6, 1895, Babe Ruth entered the world and sent chills down the spines of pitchers and outfielders across the country. After the legend earned more than 700 home runs and 2,200 RBIs, his career ended and his life faded, leaving his birthplace to fall into disrepair. In the late 1960s, a campaign restored both it and the adjoining structures to create the Babe Ruth Birthplace Museum. Babe’s widow, daughters, and sister collaborated with the museum founders to create exhibits commemorating the record breaker’s life and career, filling glass cases with balls and jerseys and restoring his bedroom to how it would have looked the year that the stork pitched the little Bambino through the window.

Originally, this museum also explored the history of the Baltimore Orioles—Ruth’s first professional team—and hosted the Baltimore Colts’ archives. Its quickly growing collection of artifacts, however, soon led to the need for a larger location. In 2005, the Babe Ruth Birthplace Museum retained those items relating to its titular legend while the rest found a new home in the Sports Legends Museum. This museum occupies the basement and first floor of the historic Camden Station, sprawling throughout 22,000 square feet with exhibits that delve into subjects such as the history of baseball in Maryland and collegiate ball.
