Our tours aren’t just for school groups! Baseball, history, or Americana fans of all ages can enjoy a visit to the Babe Ruth Birthplace Museum. We are home to the timeless story of the American icon whose humble Baltimore beginnings made him the most famous baseball player worldwide.
Exhibits on the life and career of George Herman “Babe” Ruth take your group through the world of the 1910s, 20s, and 30s, when change in our culture happened at lightning speed, much like our culture today. Discover how the the Ruth family not only changed the way we think about sports, but also how we understand hard work, media, celebrity, and family.
Then take a step back in time into the small house where he was born, a window into Baltimore over 100 years ago in a neighborhood where growing up was tough. Even the Babe started out small, but he proved that anyone can turn into a hero that’s “bigger-than-life.”
Also enjoy our award-winning film, “O Say Can You See: The Star-Spangled Banner in Sports,” the tale of how singing our national anthem became tradition in all of sports. It comes at no surprise none other than Babe Ruth was on the pitcher’s mound that day.
