Baltimore Museum of Industry

1415 Key Hwy, Baltimore, MD 21230 www.thebmi.org

The building that now houses the Baltimore Museum of Industry started out as Platt and company oyster cannery in 1865. At the time, it was one of about 80 canneries in Baltimore’s harbor, but when it closed, it was Baltimore’s last remaining cannery. Founded in 1977, the museum enables visitors to discover the businesses and inventions that forged the Industrial Revolution and propelled Maryland into the 21st century. Explore re-created workspaces and the tools and machines used in many regional industries. Step into a 1910 pharmacy, like the one where world-famous Noxzema skin cream was invented. Tour a circa-1929 garment loft similar to those once key to Baltimore’s industrial development. Live demonstrations will be taking place throughout the museum. Museum admission is free, but please check in at the front desk upon arrival. On your way out, pick up some fresh local produce at the on-site Farmer’s Market (9am-1pm)!
