Trip Advisor A Great Place to Spend an Afternoon
Dec 13, 2014 by: lmdja from Massachusetts
We were two "senior" women who have no particular interest in trains but we loved the museum. We took a tour of the Round House that lasted about 40 minutes and then wandered around by ourselves. The Christmas decorations were nice but we especially liked the history of the B&O Railroad and the importance of railroad during the Civil War. There are train rides and displays that would appeal to children but there is much history too. One section has information about clocks and telegraph that we found informative. We traveled on the Charm City Circulator. A great way to travel for free in Baltimore.

Trip Advisor Too expensive! A very good museum but not worth the price!

We paid $16.00 each with seniors discount and that it too much in my opinion just to see old trains. Some of the displays were nice. Where magazine says the price is $16, seniors (60+) $14 and we are over 60 so why $16 each for seniors?

Trip Advisor Excellent for all ages

The best RR MUSEUM. hands on, get into antique RR locomotives and passenger cars. Helpful volunteers. A real train ride, layouts, nice gift shop.

Trip Advisor Wonderful way to spend half a day.

Really very interesting original trains and presently an exhibit on the US civil (actually very uncivil) war. I learned a considerable amount. Take the kids and make a day of it.

Trip Advisor Disorganized and over priced

We spent about $50 on admission alone for 2 adults and 1 child. Wasn't worth it, no tour, just walking around looking at about 15 trains just from the outside. Then we stood about 1.5 hours to meet with Santa after which they wouldn't let my kid back in line. Security lady or more appropriately - B$&?# should be FIRED the way she treated people who paid to see Santa. We almost got into a fight with her right there because she wouldn't let my kid back in line because my kid went to the bathroom. That security b$&@#% just cursed in line with a bunch of kids there and belittled parents trying to get their kids to meet Santa. HORRIBLE!!! HORRIBLE!!!! Why they don't use some sort of a numbering system like the DMV to manage long lines is beyond me. Maybe my problem solving or people skills are better and I would have made the event more enjoyable for everyone. I would never come here and wouldn't recommend anyone go here, especially for the Santa event.
