Baltimore Museum of Industry [BMI] collects, preserves, and interprets the industrial and technological heritage of the Baltimore region for the public by presenting educational programs and exhibits that explore the stories of Maryland’s industries and the people who worked in them.
Located in the historic Platt Oyster Cannery on Baltimore's Inner Harbor South, we serve 160,000 visitors each year through unique exhibits and hands-on, curriculum-enhancing educational programs. Our public programs invite visitors of all ages to learn about Maryland’s industrial heritage as a bridge to understand the modern city and state. Visitors gain a perspective on the development of Baltimore as a major commercial, industrial and transportation center while learning about the many innovative products and ideas pioneered in the City. BMI holds up a mirror reflecting the changes in industry and commerce which have helped to shape and re-shape neighborhoods over the last 150 years.
