    Got a group on thinking my dad would enjoy this place, and we could drag along. But my sister and I ended up really liking this place. Free parking with a nice view of the water and the Dominoes Sign, they said it was fine for us to leave the car there while we walked to other places ( the visionary art museum is a short walk away, just park off to the side and leave before closing time). The way the place is set up is basically a bunch of different totally themed rooms you walk into and explore. from a corner store, pharmacy, black smith, theater and more. They had people who can explain the rooms to you and do demonstrations of the black smith work and printing press (you can take home printing samples, including a calendar) I liked the room showing pictures of places in Baltimore through out the years side by side with modern pictures. Neat to see the changes and development. No places to eat, but they do have a room with a vending machine and tables. Also have a really cool exhibit on the video game industry in Baltimore where you can go station to station creating your own video game.

    We were looking for low-cost things to do while in Baltimore for a weekend. I heard about this place and thought it'd be a perfect way to spend an afternoon. I was right! We did the tour - I highly recommend doing the tour - and learned so much more than we would have if we had just read the signs on our own. I particularly loved the printing press part of the tour & museum since I'm a graphic designer. The parking is free, which is a great thing since most places in Inner Harbor require paying for either street or garage parking. The absolute only downside was the lack of a cafeteria of some sort. There was, I think, a single vending machine. We would have stayed longer if we could have grabbed a quick bite to eat while there.

    Wonderful museum! It was far more than I expected. Having recently been to the Smithsonian, I'd say that the displays here are better in that they are more approachable and more can be learned from them. We took the guided tour on Sunday, June 18 and the tour guide was wonderful, showing us demonstrations of several of the working items they had. I'd definitely recommend a visit.

    Extremely interesting! We wish we had allocated more time here. The tour was great with examples and demonstrations of what laborers were doing during the industrial revolution! Come on a Saturday morning and you can visit the farmers market beforehand!

    Fantastic museum bringing history and curiosity together that truly creates a worth while attraction in the Baltimore area. Many of the machines still work today and many are showcased at the weekend. Worth every dime. Put aside about 3 hours if your curiosity likes to come out and play.

Where to stay in Baltimore

For quick and easy access to practically all of Baltimore's major attractionswhile on holiday, follow the example of most tourists and stay near the Inner Harbor neighborhood. Few cities boast such a well-defined tourist district, it shouldn't come as a surprise that all the major chain hotels in the city are located right in this busy neighborhood. If you prefer to stay in a quieter area offering a bit more local character, consider one of the city's outlying districts, offering affordable accommodations and plenty of dining and shopping options.
