The Sports Legends Museum at Camden Yards is located at 301 W. Camden Street. The Museum is found in the Camden Station building, just next to Oriole Park and the B&O Warehouse. The Sports Legends Museum is close by to the Babe Ruth Birthplace and Museum.
Opened in 1856, Camden Station served as the grand passenger terminus for the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, the country's first commercial railroad. For a period of time it dominated Baltimore's skyline as the city's tallest building, as it was designed to be taller than the Washington Monument.
The Sports Legends Museum features exhibits on Babe Ruth, Orioles baseball, Minor League baseball, and the Batlimore Ravens.
Additions were made to the building throughout the 19th and early 20th centuries. It was stabilized between the World Wars. In 1971, the B&O vacated what by then was America's oldest big city train terminal in continuous use, and Camden Station was sold to the Maryland Stadium Authority.
Sports Legends Museum at Camden Yards opened to the public on May 14, 2005. The Museum occupies the basement and first floor of the Station with 22,000 square feet of artifacts and interactive exhibits, transforming Camden Station into one of the most spectacular sports museums in America.
