Time & Location
If there is a must-see museum in Baltimore, it is the Baltimore Museum of Industry. We are happy to collaborate with another solo-friendly host!
Join us as Baltimore Museum of Industry (BMI) celebrates more than its rich farmers' market, but Maryland’s storied industrial legacy and the often unsung worker. Located on a thriving port that once served as a conduit to the world, BMI continues to champion innovation and the entrepreneurial spirit through its exhibits, both interactive and immersive, meant for all ages, and its special programs, events and community outreach.
Spend the morning with your Mixolo community and enjoy the market, live music, the annual Pie Fest competition and the engaging, interactive exhibits around almost every kind of work you can imagine, and take advantage rare free tour of this impressive facility and gem in Baltimore, rich with archives and artifacts from anchor industries and institutions from the past. We’ll take in a current exhibit, “Why We Work” designed by MICA and JHU students and executed by BMI’s community partners.
Housed in an 1860s oyster cannery on a five-acre, beautiful waterfront campus, BMI now serves as a channel for preserving the history of work and industry and providing inspiration and knowledge for today’s “makers” of creative solutions to the way we live.
“Baltimore has long taken pride in its identity as a “working man’s town” and this industrial heritage, central to Baltimore’s image of itself, is preserved at BMI in one of the nation’s best and broadest collections of industrial items.” - from the BMI website.
