Baltimore Museum of Industry

Baltimore Museum of Industry [ BMI ] collects, preserves, and interprets the industrial and technological heritage of the Baltimore region for the public, by presenting educational programs and exhibits that explore the stories of Maryland 's industries and the people who created and worked in them. We interpret Chesapeake Bay history by presenting artifacts like the ST Baltimore, exhibits on the port, programs like the Kids Cannery and countless other examples to tie the people and heritage to the industries that thrived in our region because of the Bay.

BMI was founded in 1977 as a project of the Mayor's Office to preserve the City's rapidly disappearing industrial heritage. In 1981, BMI moved into the historic Platt Oyster Cannery building on Baltimore 's Inner Harbor South. Over its 25 year history, BMI has grown into a six acre campus that serves over 160,000 visitors each year. The museum campus has now includes the Hercules Education Building, a pavilion for outdoor events, the Maryland Center for Career and Technology Education Studies and the Downtown Sailing Center, a nonprofit organization that rents space on our campus. Today the museum campus is highly utilized by local and regional residents as a recreational outlet in the heart of Baltimore City.

Hours: Open to the public every Tuesday - Sunday 10:00 to 4:00 p.m. Closed Mondays.
Fees: Adults $5.00; Children Under Four and Members are admitted for free. Memberships for a Single Adult are $35, Single Seniors are $25; Households are $55.
