Babe Ruth Birthplace and Museum

Learn about one of the greatest athletes in U.S. history when you visit the place where he was born, now a shrine filled with memorabilia from his baseball career.

Babe Ruth is honored in the Babe Ruth Birthplace and Museum. Visit the museum to learn more about this baseball player, so important in U.S. sports history.

The Ruthian Record exhibit explains why Babe Ruth is generally considered the greatest baseball player of all time. Photos, uniforms and other artifacts document his school days through his 22 seasons as a great slugger for the Red Sox and Yankees. Upstairs in The Historic House exhibit, visit the bedroom where “the Bambino” was born in 1895. Babe Batted Here includes a catcher’s mitt from his early days of baseball as a child. Travel more than 100 years back in time to see his 1914 rookie card.

George Herman Ruth, Jr. transitioned to sports superstardom by setting home run records and then breaking them. The museum was established by Ruth’s widow, Claire. In the exhibit Babe: Husband, Father, Friend, learn about the private side of his life. Playing the Babe provides examples of famous portrayals of his career and personal life by actor John Goodman and many others.

Babe Ruth had an amazing career record of 714 home runs, reaching 60 in one season. After learning about his life, go to The 500 Home Run Club exhibit to learn about the 25 men who have achieved 500 or more career runs.

Every baseball game starts with the national anthem. In “O” Say Can you See: The Star Spangled Banner in Sports, view a fascinating high-tech film featuring the song performed by bands and artists at various sports events. The exhibit was established in 2014 to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812.

Visit the museum any day during summer or Tuesdays through Sundays from October through March, with closure for select holidays. Hours are extended on days with Oriole home games. Seniors and those under 16 pay reduced admission.

The Babe Ruth Birthplace and Museum is conveniently located near Camden Yards in Baltimore. Take the light rail or MARC train or drive and park near the stadium. From here, the museum is easy to find: follow 60 baseballs on the sidewalk between the ballpark and the museum.
