Baltimore Museum of Industry
Welcome to the Baltimore Museum of Industry, the museum that allows you to 'see, hear, and touch Baltimore's story', the perfect introduction to the city of Baltimore for visiting groups, no matter what age range or purpose for traveling.
This museum was first founded in 1977 and is located in a historic city cannery. The museum holds exhibits on various types of manufacturing and industry from the early 20th century, with several hands-on activities available such as working equipment and other historic artifacts. The museum tells the story of the city's industrial revolution via animated displays, artifacts, and much more. It also tells the story 'of a place impacted as much by the worker as the work itself.'
During your visit, you will hear "the stories of Baltimore, how it came to be, how it continues to thrive, and how it will always press on". See how this major industrial center started as the home to the nation's first passenger railway, oldest gas station company, first traffic light, and several other inventions and innovations. Your exploration will allow you to "step back in time to the early days of a port city" as you explore permanent exhibits such as the Cannery, Garment Loft, Machine Shop, Pharmacy, Print Shop, Common Gallery, Steam Tug Baltimore, and much more.
