Loved the "Barbie" display along with the photos and Baltimore specific displays. It is worth seeing the opening video when you first arrive.

This place needs to be updated very badly. It's sad because it sits in the middle of all black American section in downtown Baltimore. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone coming to the city for the first time it anytime.
