About the Event

Explore the industrial roots that shaped South Baltimore through this walking tour developed by the Baltimore Museum of Industry (BMI). Using artifacts and historic images from the BMI’s collections, this tour honors the workers who built Baltimore into a maritime powerhouse and examines the legacy that manufacturing, shipbuilding, and other heavy industries have left on the peninsula.

Enjoy this self-guided walking tour on foot (parking in the BMI’s lot is free to tour participants), by car, or from the comfort of your home. Share your thoughts on social media with the hashtag #BMIwalkingtour or tag @BMIatWork. Or, email your suggestions to
