Baltimore Museum of Industry

1415 Key Hwy., Baltimore, MD 21230

Baltimore Museum of Industry has exhibits on various types of manufacturing and industry from the early 20th century. The BMI galleries recreate parts of a cannery, a garment loft from 1900, a machine shop from 1900, a print shop, Dr. Bunting's Pharmacy (where Noxzema was invented), as well as exhibits on the food industry in Baltimore (McCormick, Domino Sugar, Esskay).

In the Decker Gallery, the Milestone wall documents inventions and processes discovered first in Baltimore, and Maryland.

The BMI is also home to the Baltimore, the oldest surviving steam tugboat and a National Historic Landmark.

The library consists of over 5,000 volumes of rare and historic books. The manuscript collections cover all major industries in Baltimore including canning, the cloth trades, violin making, and the steel industry. The photographic collections consist of more than 250,000 prints and negatives, including the Baltimore Gas and Electric Company Print and Negative Collection.

The museum is located on the site of the old Platt Oyster Cannery on the North-west branch of the Patapsco River.
