Long before nicknames like “the Sultan of Swat” and “the Babe,” George Herman Ruth, Jr. was a bright-eyed, Baltimore-born ballplayer. Even though Babe played the majority of his major league ball for the Yankees, his storied career is cataloged and on display in Baltimore at the Babe Ruth Birthplace & Museum.
The museum is made up of several exhibits, such as the 500 Home Run Club and the Historic House. It even boasts the small upstairs bedroom where Ruth was actually born on February 6, 1895. Located just a long fly ball away from Oriole Park at Camden Yards, the museum can easily be found by following the 60 painted baseballs on the sidewalks leading from the ballpark to the museum’s front door.
Looking for a more comprehensive Baltimore sports experience? Opened in May 2005, the Sports Legends Museum at Camden Yards is home to everything from horse racing to the Baltimore Colts, the Blast to the Ravens, and the Terps to the O’s. Located inside the historic Camden Station (Abe Lincoln stopped here en route to his 1861 Inauguration,) the Sports Legends Museum is every fan’s ticket to history. With interactive exhibits, one of a kind memorabilia, and frequent appearances by Baltimore sports icons, Sports Legends Museum is a must-see for any fan.
