The Baltimore Museum of Industry focuses on exhibits that explore various types of manufacturing and industry from the early 20th century. The museum also documents inventions and processes discovered in Baltimore and Maryland. 

The museum’s exhibits include recreations of parts of a cannery, a 1900s garment loft, a machine shop from 1900, a print shop, a Pharmacy, as well as exhibits on the food industry in Baltimore.

The museum was founded in 1977 to preserve the industrial history of Baltimore, and there are also hands-on sections with working equipment and other artifacts. 

The library consists of over 5,000 rare and historical books. The manuscript collections cover all major industries in Baltimore, including canning, the cloth trades, violin making, and the steel industry.

The museum is housed in an old Oyster Cannery, and its photographic collections consist of over 250,000 prints and negatives.
