The location had information and displays about Babe Ruth's family life and career and is well laid out and very interesting.

A must for baseball fans! A lot of Babe Ruth packed into one little museum. Learn why we sing the National Anthem before each game. And walk the floors where the Babe once lived.
Quick stop before the game

The museum is a few "tricky" blocks from the stadium, but follow the baseballs on the sidewalk & you'll be there! It costs $6 for adults, small attraction but it has some interesting items, a video regarding how the Star Spangled Banner became a part of the game, nice history also. Also has a small gift shop and a single use bathroom. I would have to say in my opinion that this is not a handicapped friendly destination. Play Ball!
Nice to see the history

My husband wanted to go to the Sports Museum so we purchased a Groupon that included admission to that and the Babe Ruth Museum. This was very interesting to see - and we were there during the anniversary of the Star Spangled Banner, so that video and history was interesting as well. If you're a baseball fan, this is a must. It was a bit tricky to find, but just follow the baseballs painted on the sidewalk and it will lead you right to his door. The man at the gift shop was incredibly helpful as well telling us the best way to get back to the Harbor.
Great hit with this museum

We purchased the combo pack of this museum and sports legends. Great activities to do before an Orioles game because of the close proximity. We love baseball history and history itself. Loved to see how the house looked like and babes home runs graphically displayed by year with plaques. My favorite part was the connection to the star spangled banner and the babe since both are from this town. During the 1918 world series was the first time star spangled banner was played and the Babe was in this series. The whole story of how is moved a player to salute and teammates to stand in a line in respect was so moving. You get to walk upstairs to see where he was born. The museum also talks about his grandparents.
