Arguably the most legendary athlete of all-time, Babe Ruth popularized the “Home Run” in baseball. Although he’s best known as the New York Yankees slugger nicknamed the Sultan of Swat, his roots are planted in Baltimore. Old Yankees stadium was the House that Ruth built, but Baltimore has the House that Built Ruth.
Located just 3 blocks from Oriole Park at Camden Yards, this museum is housed in the actual birthplace of George Herman “Babe” Ruth. Finding your way between the two is simple: a sidewalk trail of 60 painted baseballs connects them.
The museum enshrines the legacy of not only Babe Ruth, but now also showcases the historic achievements of local sports legends from the Baltimore Orioles, Baltimore Ravens, Baltimore Colts, and smaller regional and professional teams.
