The Baltimore Museum of Industry will temporarily close effective March 14, to support Maryland’s effort to contain the spread of COVID-19.

The Museum will not hold any public programs on campus or at other locations. We will be closed through April 12 though we will continue to reassess as the situation evolves.

The BMI joins other local and regional institutions in making the health, safety and well-being of our employees, volunteers, program participants and visitors is our first priority.


Join the Industrial Evolution…
Step Back in Time to the Early Days of a Port City 

The Baltimore Museum of Industry is a connection factory. Only when you suit up to shuck oysters, develop your own video game, or watch a blacksmith forge iron does your connection reveal itself. It could be the moment you realize how important your grandfather’s factory job really was in building this great city. It could be the “That’s what I wanna do when I grow up” moment. We don’t know what your connection to Baltimore’s story is, but we do know one thing. This is where you’ll find it.

Your Gift Makes a Difference

Help us inspire tomorrow’s workers by ensuring that the stories of the laborers and entrepreneurs who built our city are preserved for future generations.
