Never had been before and really enjoyed it. Didn't know so many things were associated with Baltimore.
Fun and different place to visit

The museum has an enormous amount of information within its walls. The history of business in Baltimore is traced from the beginning of canning to today. The exhibits are excellent and well explained
Detailed history of the working man/woman/child

Great attention to detail, expansive displays, frequent tours with meaningful commentary. A bit pricey.
Not great with young kids

I had heard that this was a neat little gem in Baltimore and was pretty good for kids; however I wasn't too impressed. There were tons of really neat antiques, but I found a lot of the labels missing or unclear (the machine might be named, but no explanation of how it functioned). There was no one available to answer questions we may have had. They did have "touch boxes" in most rooms, but they were largely empty or incomplete (one had stamps, but all the stamp pads were dry), and a few even had trash in them.
Unsung History of Charm City

Surprisingly fun museum, even better with the free guided tour. Provided an interesting look at many of the industries that grew up in and helped grow Baltimore, many of which have since moved on or closed down. Conveniently located near the Inner Harbor area, there is plenty of free parking and plenty to see. There are hands on items for kids but the smaller ones may lose interest. Not as crowded as other downtown attractions, so a leisurely tour is easy and informative.
