My husband and I spent two hours walking around this great museum. Had a tour with Ed which was fantastic! Learned a lot about the history of Baltimore. Definitely go check this place out!

Trip Advisor A Glimpse at Old Working Class Baltimore
Feb 05, 2015 by: Frances F from Fairfield, Ohio
This museum offers exhibits about industries that were important in Baltimore, such as the canning and garment industries and also a great deal of information about the days when Boston was a major port city. An interesting view of an aspect of the city that people don't always see when they visit.

What a pleasant surprise. This museum is much larger on the inside than we expected, with more exhibits than we expected. Admission is listed as $12 for adults, with AAA we received 2-for-1. The museum has plenty of free parking on its adjacent lot. The museum is on the waterfront of the south side of the Inner Harbor. From inside the museum, and from the museum's outside terrace, there are fabulous unobstructed views of the more-developed north side of the inner harbor. There is a lunchroom inside (tables and chairs, bring your own food as there is not a cafeteria) and a picnic pavilion outside. Some of the exhibits are hands-on, some are hands off. We will go back again.

Trip Advisor Baltimore's past

We enjoyed the museum very much and the staff were friendly. I was bothered by some erroneous facts in the captions, however. My 11-year old grandson knew enough about the history of engineering to point out the errors!

Pros: Reasonably priced. Adults are $12 and kids 7+ are $7. Kids 6 and under are free. I found a Living Social Deal which made everything 1/2 price, so we paid $6 for adults and $3.50 for our 7yo daughter. Parking is free and onsite. I wish I had known that - I looked on their website and it made no mention of parking. When I found the museum, only the Exit was visible from the street, so I couldn't tell there was a parking lot there and paid for street parking. Several different exhibits that the kids had fun looking at. Cons: Great for "older kids" and adults because there are free tours and lots to see and read. I brought my 4 children ages 7,6, 4 and 1. The 7 and 6yo liked it, but while there was a lot to see/read, there wasn't a lot to DO/TOUCH, so my younger two were bored and whiny the whole time. Time: We were there for 1.5 hrs and saw pretty much everything. It is all located on one floor.
