Museum and B&O
Apr 18, 2014 by: Rainymomsjersey from
The museum was nice but not worth it for younger kids. While they had a nice play area with blocks and toy trains, this was not worth the price of admission. The train ride was depressing. The scenery consisted of barbed wire encircled shopping areas, tagged buildings and old railroad equipment as well as a lot of litter. We went with the Easter bunny which the kids enjoyed but we saw the bunny for all of 45 seconds. Do the museum with older kids and skip the train ride.
Very good museum

Loved the history and the amount of exhibits. Very well done. The history and progression and expanse of the museum was very good. Loved the outside train area.
Excellent and historical museum

There's a lot to see at the B&O. I highly recommend it to families and railfans, but most people would probably have a fun afternoon here. There is an admission fee, but it's also a Smithsonian museum and they have a lot of nice stuff. The roundhouse is beautiful, and several times a year there are demonstrations of it's workings. A few of the trains are open to be explored inside and out. There are also outdoor and indoor areas to visit, and a great little miniature train exhibit that is reflective of Baltimore's downtown. They run short train rides on weekends, and while there isn't much to see, it is a fun experience. I liked this place enough to be a member.

This is a very nice and impressive museum, very attractive to anyone interesting in the history of railroads in that region.

We had a three-year-old with us who lives and breathes trains, and this was a fantastic place for him (and us). Lots of educational exhibits for all ages, wonderful volunteers (?) throughout who were very knowledgable and helpful, and much to do. His favorite was the model train area inside a train car. We could have stayed there all day, and I'm not referring only to the little one! We loved this place and would definitely go again!
