Staff well informed with historical points; large than expected museum; grounds well maintained; well worth returning!
It's free and fun

This is a nice little museum. Don't expect full size locomotives. It is the only free activity on in historic Ellicott City. I usually stay about 15 minutes.
History in the heart of Ellicott City

If you are downtown Ellicott City or perhaps just venturing through the Baltimore area, this is a great spot to stop in and see a slice of history. From the civil war to so much else passed through this station. The town around it is also worth exploration!

Fantastic Historical Experience

The B & O Railroad Museum offers the most amazing look into railroad history that I have ever experienced! If you have even a mild interest in the inner workings of the railway system, how railroads grew and evolved into what we see today, or you just like climbing about in antique rail cars, then this is the place for you! Just pulling into the parking lot starts my imagination right up, as I am literally surrounded by trains and locomotives of all age, size, and color. It brings the mind to wonder where they have been, and what stories they have to tell. The entrance of the historical station looks much like it did in old photographs, and I can almost envision the likes of Edgar Allan Poe stepping through the door to board a train. Once inside, the ticket options include the attractions of this vast museum, Mile One Express train rides, and Choo Choo Blueville... just for kids. They even have special events on sale, with crowd pleasers like Choo Choo Soul! The interactive exhibits, walk through experiences, and historical artifacts on display are nothing short of inspiring, culminating in the beauty of the 1884 Baldwin Roundhouse.
