Museum and Stadium Tours in Baltimore

The Warehouse Building in Camden YardsOn Eutaw Street beginning our escorted tourGuests in the dugout at Orioles ParkRuth Museum
June 16, 2011 - Whenever we're on the road with our group travel tours, we try to schedule baseball stadium tours to get a behind-the-scenes look at how things operate in the bigs. So while in Baltimore, we took in the guided tour of Orioles Park.

The tour that they give is probably one of the best tours in the majors based on the amount of time that they give you as well as the information that they share.
Inside the museum
The tour starts on Eutaw Street and visits the club level, luxury and party suites, media room, press box, the field and dugouts. All in all it's a great tour that's worth the visit.

We also stopped in the Babe Ruth Birthplace Museum which is just a few blocks from Orioles Park. The museum is rich with history of Babe's life, not just his formative years in Baltimore. Here are some photos from the Museum.

Orioles and Rays at Camden Yards

Posted by Big League Tours on Wed, Nov 23, 2011 @ 11:45 AM

June 16, 2011 - The second day of our tour, we loaded up and headed to Baltimore to see the Orioles and Rays at Camden Yards. For most in our group, it was their first trip to the first of the "retro" parks that started a new trend in stadium design and architecture. But more about that when I write about our baseball stadium tours.

The game was a Sunday afternoon game and, just like the day before, was delayed slightly by rain. This time the game started just six minutes late. Our guests were sitting just above the Rays dugout with a great view of the field and of the warehouse building. The picture to the left was taken from our seats.

On each of our baseball road trips that include Orioles Park, our guests always like this ballpark and tend to include it in their favorite. More to come from our escorted tour of the stadium on Monday.

East Coast 2 Baseball Tour, Part II

Posted by Big League Tours on Fri, Nov 18, 2011 @ 11:00 AM

Stadium Tour of Camden Yards
June 20, 2008 - We began our day with an escorted tour of Oriole Park at Camden Yards. After being blown away by this facility the night before, it was great to get a behind the scenes tour of such a great ballpark. It's just too bad that Boog's Barbeque wasn't open for another round...Group in Orioles dugout while on stadium tour

The tour itself was fantastic. We started on Eutaw Street, which is now the space between the outfield seats and the warehouse, and managed to make our way through every level of the ballpark. Our guide, Susan, led us through the tour that was part Orioles history, ballpark history, as well as Baltimore facts and history.

Here's our group sitting in the Orioles dugout.

This has to have been the most thorough stadium tour that I have ever been on. I believe it was the most enjoyable, too. Thanks to Susan and everyone at the tours office in Baltimore!
