Baltimore Museum of Industry
This museum showcases the history of work in Baltimore, from the mid-19th century to the present day. The museum's gallery space and research center offers information about Maryland's businesses and industries, from the lost art of handcrafted tin cans to today's technological innovations. Many of the collections change periodically, but 'Signs of the Times' is a permanent display. This unique collection offers visitors a glimpse of the evolution of signs, the oldest form of advertising. The exhibit also features a Neon Sign Shop and demonstration area.
The museum was started in 1972 in an old cannery building. It has great displays of canning operations, some old cars, an old sewing factory, and displays of the great Baltimore companies. Baltimore is famous for many technology firsts - Black and Decker tools, clippership airplane, space technology, Bendix radios, etc. If you love nostalgia, this is the place! The admission price is reasonable, and staff are friendly.
This museum is different from the stuffy hands-off experience for kids. Imagine a plan hanging from the ceiling - a working blacksbmith, a linotype operator and a cool exhibit on the WIRE. All are there with great guides and something for everyone. We went with our parents and kids and the multigenerational learning was phenomenal.
Please go and take your parents and kids before it is too late. Your folks will recognize their youth and your kids will peek into history.
