Visitors to the Baltimore Museum of Industry can interact with the technologies which forged the Industrial Revolution. Exhibits include recreated workshops of machining, printing, garment-making and metalworking, as well as local inventions from the first disposable bottle cap to modern radar. There are also lots of hands-on activities for kids.
Hey, did you know that Baltimore had the first Catholic Church in the U.S.? Or the first umbrella factory? Or that the Linotype machine was invented here? Well, uh, I guess you know now, but historian Wayne R. Schaumburg has plenty of other historical firsts to share with all you trivia fans out there.
