The Sultan of Swat. The King of Crash. The Colossus of Clout. The Great Bambino. No matter what name you prefer, George Herman “Babe” Ruth is undoubtedly one of the most important figures in the history of American sports, and in the history of American popular culture as a whole.
Built on the site of his birthplace, which is just moments from The Zenith, the Babe Ruth Museum highlights the early life and spectacular career of the Babe. Packed with artifacts, memorabilia, photographs, and more, the museum has five permanent exhibits, as well as temporary displays featuring items that are periodically rotated in from the museum’s archival collection. While the hall of fame has plenty of material relating to Ruth’s career, this museum also gives you a glimpse into the life of Ruth as a man.
It’s just a few steps from Camden Yards, so next time you have baseball tickets give yourself some extra time to explore this historic museum — it shouldn’t take more than 90 minutes to see everything!
