Babe Ruth - Museum

Museum

The Babe Ruth Birthplace Museum is located at 216 Emory Street, a Baltimore row house in which Ruth was born and which is three blocks west of Oriole Park at Camden Yards. The property was restored and opened to the public in 1974, by the non-profit Babe Ruth Birthplace Foundation, Inc. Ruth's widow, Claire, his two daughters, Dorothy and Julia, and his sister, Mamie, helped select and install exhibits that depict the life and times of Babe Ruth. In 1983, the building became the official museum of the Baltimore Orioles, which signed Ruth to his first professional contract. In 1985, the museum was designated by Baltimore mayor William Donald Schaefer as the official archives of the Baltimore Colts, which had moved the previous year to Indianapolis. On May 14, 2005, the newly opened Sports Legends Museum at Camden Yards became the repository for the many Orioles and Colts artifacts and other items.
