  • We did a visit to this museum while looking where to host our upcoming national conference's off-site event for our attendees. Definitely a great space.  more »
  • The Baltimore Museum of Industry is a hidden gem sitting in plain view along Key Highway and a good reason for people not to stop their visits at the more tourist oriented northern side of the Baltimore Inner Harbor. The combination of history and art is impressive. The recreation of stores and workshops takes the museum beyond traditional displays to helping visitors what a bakery, grocery or tailoring business was really like. Educational facilities include mini theatres and classrooms. Free parking is ample. The fact that all displays and activities are on one floor makes it easy to move around. The theme of stressing the value of work of all kinds flows throughout along with that if introducing visitors to the unique role Baltimore residents did play and continue to play in building the state and the nation.
  • We purchased the Fourth of July that included parking and museum tickets. You could bring as many people fit in the car and a picnic. It was a great time! The museum provides a great space to accommodate guests. You can bring all your picnic necessities like tables, chairs, coolers etc and find a spot on their outdoor decks. There’s also a pavilion where you can “park” your family if you want. The Car parking was easy and really close. We found a great spot to have our picnic and just enjoyed our snacks.Then, we walked over to the museum which has memorabilia and artifacts from the industrial era in Baltimore. It was fun and educational. The museum also provided music and activities for kids out in the pavilion. People danced and kids enjoyed themselves. Everyone had a great view of the fireworks and the inner harbor. In attendance were an diverse group of families but everyone was friendly and peacefully enjoying our holiday. I don’t want to forget to add that the museum has great bathrooms too! I highly recommend for everyone of all ages!!
