The Babe Ruth Birthplace and Museum tells the story of this amazing sportsman, and celebrates his career through dynamic exhibits and programs.

On display you can see Babe Ruth's actual bat he used, as well as his uniform, and a number of other personal items that will really allow you to connect with this impressive player on a deeper level!

Back in 1895, the harbor area of Baltimore was a rough place, but that's exactly where George Herman Ruth was born - the son of a German saloon keeper - in a tiny row house on Emory Street. Today, you can see the upstairs room where Babe was actually born. It's a wonderful exhibit to show kids that no matter where you come from, that doesn't define or limit what you can achieve!

Go on to see how "the Bambino" learned the game of baseball, and how he got his start!

Also at the Babe Ruth Birthplace and Museum you can explore his reputation as a husband, father and friend, as well as see how he was portrayed over the years on the big screen
