Great Place to Spend the Day with Kids
Apr 26, 2015 by: COTraveller33 from Silver Spring, Maryland
So - we went for the Thomas the Train Day - and I'm sure a lot of their activities were JUST for the occasion. However - the museum does have a lot for kids. Besides the static displays of trains, stage coaches, etc... there are rides, a miniature train village and a decent giftshop. We spent about 4 hours there on Sunday, and definitely didn't see everything. Parking: limited (neighborhood is hit or miss) Location: close to downtown Bathrooms: ? Food: Concession stand set-up. Again not sure if it was for the event only. But it was overpriced snack-ish food (fries, pretzels, hot dogs, chicken nuggets, etc...) Staff: Everywhere. Lots of people cleaning and supporting the patrons. (note: there was also a law enforcement presence there - I think it was in-part due to the on-going riots/protests in Baltimore). Expense: We had tickets for the event.
Grandkids love it

There is a ton to see and do; an indoor play area for kids, trains and displays for the adults. Outside you can take a legit train ride (about 30 min total), an outdoor play area with rides and a snack bar with tables. Back inside there’s a nice gift shop.

Beautiful building and trains. Staff very knowledgeable. For kids and adults. Christmas train ride with Santa was hit when son was young. To tell the truth we also enjoyed it!

This past week they relived 150 years ago what happened when President Lincoln was brought to Baltimore on his final trip to Springfield for burial. People were dressed in period costumes, brass band playing music. It was very somber to watch. Also they have a great collections of railroad engines and cars.

We enjoyed the museum and the roundhouse blew me away. Such a neat space! The displays were great and the staff was friendly. We chose to ride the 20 minute train ride ($3 extra) and it was just okay. (we took the MARC train to Baltimore and thought the museum train was going to be an older, historic one, not a former MARC train) Tip: Google "b and o railroad museum coupons" and you'll find a buy one admission, get one free coupon. It came in handy since admission for an adult is $18.
