Great museum with lots of beautifully restored engines and train cars. The roundhouse is fantastic. This was a visit for myself and my husband, but I couldn't help but notice how nicely they have created areas for young children to enjoy. The model train (ho scale) was nicely done. Really enjoyed this visit and was happy that we added this on to our trip at the last minute.

My husband, being a B&O railroad enthusiast, has long wanted to visit this museum. He enjoyed it very much. The museum is immaculate, roundhouse included. We were impressed with all the engines, and with the volunteer staff...they were so helpful and knowledgeable! I especially enjoyed the clock room! There was even an area especially for children. The only drawback as far as my husband was concerned was that he would have liked to have seen more of the tools and equipment that workers used to build the railroad. Overall, a very good experience. I would highly recommend it!
Lots of railroad cars

If you like trains this is a place for you. They have a beautiful roundhouse which houses steam engines. There is also another building with more trains and a couple platforms with trains. There is a daily train ride which we missed. This is where the first set of tracks were set down in america. There is a ho model set in one of the train cars. Also an exhibit of some train china. Outside there is a place to get a snack and a larger model train running outside. Parking is free. The area around the museum was a little suspect so I would recommend using the museum parking.
A Must Stop for a Railfan

Not easy to get to without a car, but worth it. Excellent guide staff with wide knowledge of the topic and very eager to help. If you are in the city, make time for this.

The Civil War exhibit was excellent as was the other museum displays. Many train engines and other period historical pieces on display.
