One of the best parts of this museum is learning about all the firsts Baltimore can claim. I won't spoil the fun, but one of the surprises was that Head skis made the first all-metal skis here. Who knew?

Cool museum which basically tells the history of industry in Baltimore. It was interesting to see how various companies - many of which are now known on a national level - got their start and grew throughout the years.
