Women of Steel highlights the stories of women who worked at Bethlehem Steel’s Sparrows Point mill

The Women of Steel exhibition hangs on the museum’s fence along Key Highway in South Baltimore to allow for social distancing and open-air exploration during COVID-19. This is the first time the BMI has hosted an outdoor exhibition and it is free of charge to view. Support the Women of Steel exhibition. Click here to donate, or go to paypal.me/BMIatWork.
