Three years ago, the BMI launched one of its most ambitious projects ever. The Bethlehem Steel Legacy Project honors the men and women who worked at Bethlehem’s massive Sparrows Point steel mill from 1887 to 2012. To tell their story, we asked what does Bethlehem Steel mean to Baltimore.
In response, the BMI has been entrusted with hundreds of objects and documents that help tell the story of steelmaking in Baltimore. And, most importantly, we’ve recorded the memories of people who worked and lived at the Point so future generations will never forget the hard work and pride that defined Bethlehem Steel.
Opening Friday, September 24, 2021, Fire & Shadow: The Rise and Fall of Bethlehem Steel includes vivid photographs, moving first-person narratives, original artifacts, and an opportunity to explore Bethlehem Steel objects in three dimensions through augmented reality.

Collect a piece of Baltimore history and help preserve the city’s industrial past.
This is your chance to purchase up to two keepsake medallions cut from the letter ‘D’ of the recently dismantled, iconic Domino Sugars neon sign that graced the Baltimore City skyline from 1951 to 2021.
These one of a kind collectibles were donated by ASR Group / Domino Sugar to support the Baltimore Museum of Industry’s mission, to preserve and celebrate Maryland’s industrial legacy and show how innovation fuels ongoing progress. The keepsake medallions are available exclusively from the Baltimore Museum of Industry.
In addition to cash donations, which can be pledged by check or credit card, the BMI gladly accepts gifts of stock, planned or deferred contributions, and in-kind services. To discuss giving options, please contact the Development Office at email@example.com or 410.727.4808 x129.
