As someone (previously clueless about Baltimore history) doing research on Baltimore and some Baltimore ancestry, I found this place simply fascinating. I think nearly every item we use on a daily basis was invented in Baltimore! Refrigerators, air conditioning, licorice, the Sunday newspaper, canned fruit,...More

Both of my children went here for 4th grade field trips and enjoyed the experience "shucking oysters" and playing a character from the 1800's. It was interesting to hear about how different Baltimore was back then and the typical working experience of the "average folks."...More

It's out of the tourist area, but the blue (aka Banner) Circulator bus goes there. We found it by accident, but enjoyed it immensely. I thought it would be all about shipping industry etc, but turned out to cover many more. Very hands-on and interesting.

Went there Saturday for a wedding reception. Amazing site and beautiful setting on the Baltimore Waterfront. Great interest to Baltimore natives although I'm not sure how interesting it would be for out of towners. I loved it!
