Great venue for an event
Nov 25, 2013 by: S G from
I went to a wedding here, embarrassed to say it was my first time at this museum. What a cool place for an event! As a Baltimorean, it was very interesting to see all the companies that started out in Baltimore and really walk down memory lane. The museum is filled with the history of these old companies and gives you lots to look at during the cocktail hour.
A very interesting place

This is a fun place with or without the kids. The exhibits are interesting and are very varied. Nostalgia and what was are a great part of the experience that will be enjoyed when visiting.
Lots of Interesting Local Facts & History

I think this one is a field trip staple for most of the local schools, and it should be! There is a lot of very interesting history about Baltimore. My son had already been there wit his class, but kept asking us to go back with him so we could see it too. We went on a weekday, towards the end of August. There were only a handful of other folks there. Since that was the case, we had an almost private guided tour of the place. The young lady who gave us the tour was extremely knowledgeable and kept my 10-year old son very engaged. Lots of stuff about the canning industry, steel working, and all sorts of other local businesses. It's a little off the beaten path, but a good, educational. way to spend part of your day while in Batimore.
Great museum - lots to see

This was a great museum. I thought it did a great job of capturing the unknown (to me anyway) industrial prowess that forms part of the heritage of the Baltimore area. From seeing actual machinery used in the variety of industries to which Baltimore has served as a home, to thinking about how much the world has changed in a relatively short period of time, this museum did a great job in a relatively small footprint of providing a lot of value. I was stunned to see the number of household names and products that claim Baltimore as their homes and to see the amount of work that went into a number of relatively simple things that we now take for granted such as canned food. The location is served by the Charm City Circulator meaning that many tourists can arrive via a free bus from the places they're likely to be staying. We arrived and spent about an hour and a half in the museum, narrowly missing a collision with a group of school children that was headed out. I think that the relative peace and quiet added to the experience of the museum and I probably would not have enjoyed it as much with a hundred little kids running rampant through the exhibits. I would recommend a visit if you're into history and have some time to spare.
good for kids

I felt bored but saw a lot kids in. not close to down town, but the free circulator goes there. Around 15 mins there's bus.
