We had such a great time! First we took a guided tour and learned about the oyster industry, the canning business, poor working conditions, the Baltimore fire, and so much more! We were allowed to touch certain items and see some older machinery function. After, we took the self guided tour, which included the tv station, automobiles, pharmacy and general store which houses numerous McCormick products. There's also ducks outside and an interesting statue that's just gigantic. Plenty of fun for young and old alike!
We loved the BMI! It was very interactive and we especially liked all the historical artifacts there were to look at
Lots of good, informative displays about life and work in Baltimore, mostly in the 1800s and early 20th century. Lots of good hands-on stuff for the kids. It’s an odd museum in that there seems to be a lot of wasted/underused space in places, while other areas are really packed. The working boat is a highlight if you can make it for that. Admission isn’t cheap, but still it’s a fun place to take the kids.
Good for a quick trip but not very big. Great place for a party or social function
Great museum. Never even heard of it but saw it on a Web site. Lots of really good exhibits.
Amazing way to spend the day. So much interesting information. Hands on stuff for kids. Make sure you pick up the IPods at the front desk that are free with admission they add to the experience. Saturday demonstrations and hands on workshops for the kids. Great place!
Great for kids. Guided tour for kindergartens was excellent. Great place for a school trip.
Great place to learn some of America's history. Had a student discount for me. Interesting stuff.
Fascinating museum with information you won't find elsewhere. Also, there are demonstrations of old technology like blacksmithing.
If you are in the area this is a great way to spend some time. I enjoyed it more than I was expecting. I would definatly ho back.
We went here to attend a robot competition and I'm looking to go back. Everything we have now and all the conveniences and new gadgets are a result of the Industrial Age. This museum is all about this. Displays are very interesting and relevant for all ages. Great for families. Perfect for engineering students and those that are interested in the history of technology.
It is cool to see and all. I don't get the beauty of Baltimore Harbor though. The subtle droning of gun shots and sirens kind of kills the vibe. I think prior to the city being run into the ground and the harbor being filled with medical waste it was pretty cool. Don't get me wrong though.. if you're stuck in Baltimore for some reason this is a pretty neat thing to check out between ER visits for gun shot and/or stab wounds.
There are so many exhibits to visit here. The staff was knowledgeable about so many different areas as well as the history of Baltimore. They are great with kids as well. This is a great place to learn many new things and enjoy the great scenery.
Went on a fourth grade field trip and it was very nice. The students really enjoyed being a part of the assembly line if oyster packing. It gave them real perspective on how life was life during that time period. We did not have a chance to really explore the rest of the museum, but it did look like it was informative. It's probably better for older children .
I have always loved folk art, outsider art and art that can't be found in most museums. My only quibbles are that the ticket price is a bit high and the main exhibition tends to stay up for one year. I love the gift shop.
A great museum with artifacts from Baltimore's history. Reasonably priced, free off street parking and interactive exhibits great for kids. If you are visiting Baltimore and don't want to pay an arm and a leg to get in the Aquarium, definitely check this place out.
Could be way better. It had a strong fly by night type of feel to it. Had potential to be so much better
Amazing museum. Tons of interactive displays and we loved the 1953 Packard car you could climb into.
