Q. Where is the Babe Ruth Birthplace Museum?
A. The Babe Ruth Birthplace is located just two blocks east of Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard at 216 Emory Street. It is conveniently located two (2) blocks from Oriole Park at Camden Yards, the Convention Center, two major interstates (83 and 95), Baltimore’s famed Inner Harbor, and several downtown attractions.
Q. Where should buses pick up and drop off?
A. Buses may use Pratt Street at the corner of Emory Street when visiting the Babe Ruth Birthplace. In most cases, the buses can sit on Pratt Street and/or Camden Street with the driver while the group is touring.
Q. When should our group arrive?
A. We ask that all groups arrive at least 15 minutes prior to your scheduled visit time.
Q. What if I need to cancel my visit?
A. If you must cancel your visit, you must contact the group sales office at least two weeks prior to your scheduled arrival time. Failure to do so will result in a $25 cancellation fee in addition to all deposit monies paid.
Q. What if the weather is bad?
A. In the event of inclement weather, the museum may have to alter operating hours or close completely. You should call the museum directly and/or visit this website to find out the museum’s status. On the occasion that your trip in canceled due to weather, please call on the next business day to reschedule your group visit.
Q. What about lunch?
A. There are lots of options for lunch in close proximity to the museum. Pickle’s Pub, Sliders, and the Penn & Pratt Restaurant are located within walking distance. School groups under 50 may eat bag lunches in the museum courtyard for an additional $25 set-up fee. You must pre-arrange your group’s lunch plans when the tour is booked. The group must take any lunch trash with them when they leave the museum.
TIP for Bag Lunches: Mark all brown bags with the student’s name, school and teacher’s name. Have the students put their lunches in a large container before boarding the bus at school. This will allow for one or two people to go back to the bus to retrieve lunches while the rest of the adults get the children situated in the designated lunch area. The organization will alleviate confusion and help facilitate the eating portion of your visit, therefore allowing you more time to enjoy the museum. And please remember — groups are not permitted to eat lunch in the museum.
