The BMI needs your help NOW to preserve Baltimore’s industrial heritage.

Work. We all do it. It’s the thing that builds cities, enacts change, and improves the world. It’s rarely easy or glamorous. But behind all of the striving and effort, there’s a person and a story worth treasuring. Sharing our stories helps us remember moments in Baltimore’s history, connects our past experiences to present day issues, and shows us how we can inspire a better future for Baltimore.

You are a part of the Baltimore story. We depend on your continued support so that the BMI will always be a place where you can remember, connect, and be inspired. Help the BMI preserve our collective story and Baltimore’s unique industrial heritage. Make your gift TODAY.
