This is a great museum for history and rail fans. It is located in the buildings that formed the foundation of the first railroad in America. There are a number of wonderful examples or rolling stock from all periods of rail history, engines - steam, electric and diesel and a wide range of unique railcars. You can take a short train ride, see the engine shops and expolre the historic roundhouse. Go during the Christmas Holidays when there are a number of model train displays. Kids will love this place.

My 3 year old son may be the biggest railfan in Hampton Virginia, when we travel to Baltimore he wont let us leave without a stop at the train museum! Its very family freindly and well worth the fair. Be sure to give yourself at LEAST 4 hours to explore!

A step into History

Very interesting place for young and old. Step back into history via all the wonderful trains from long ago. The main circular building is very well set up and one can follow the evolution of the railroads. There are ramps provided for viewing the workings both inside and outside several trains. Very wheelchair-friendly as well as allowing those with young families having strollers. This museum is very children friendly as well as there are many interactive activities for parents/children. There is also a play area inside the round-house for children to act out there railroad fantasies. Outside are rides for children as well, ie. train, merry-go-around and the like. Next to this play area is a very convenient snack bar with plenty of restrooms. On the way out there is a small gift shop for souvenirs.
Wonderful for all
