Like the Orioles, the Sports Legends Museum is closing up shop at Camden Yards as baseball season ends. But unlike the birds, the museum won’t be back in the spring.
A lease dispute led the museum to close up shop, and look for a new home. A new location has yet to be found.
“Following long negotiations, the Babe Ruth Birthplace Foundation declined to renew its lease with the Maryland Stadium Authority (MSA) at Camden Station, the northeast corner of the Camden Yards complex,” a message on the museum’s website said.
The Sports Legends Museum moved into the historic Camden Station in 2005. The Museum has a trove of memorabilia that made up Baltimore-centric exhibits on the Orioles, Ravens and even the Baltimore Colts. It’s one of two museums outside Oriole Park. The Babe Ruth Birthplace, which is located next to the Sports Legends Museum and was recently renovated, will remain open.
Earlier this summer, the Maryland Stadium Authority put out a call for new tenants, so the Camden Station space may not be empty for long.
