Baltimore Museum of Industry

The Baltimore Museum of Industry (BMI) was founded in 1977 as a project of the Mayor's Office of the City of Baltimore to preserve the City's rapidly disappearing industrial heritage. In 1981, it incorporated as a private non-profit educational institution. In May of that year, the BMI moved into the historic Platt Oyster Cannery building (c.1870) in South Baltimore. The Museum launched its first capital campaign in 1989 towards the renovation of the facility to enhance its appearance and create first-rate gallery space for its exhibits.

Children can explore the museum through gallery touch boxes related to printing, shipping, canning, the garment industry and more.

The BMI offers gallery tours, stories, crafts, and songs as a part of its Wee Workers interactive program designed especially for preschoolers! The facility can also be rented for Birthday Parties.
