The roundhouse building is an architectural gem worth seeing in its own right. Information boards are extremely well presented and guide you through the exhibits and their place in history. Try to get there early so you can travel on the 1 mile long stretch...More

We went to the B&O with our son and 2-year-old grandson for the first time around Christmastime 2016, and although very crowded, it was just a magical experience for the little guy, and for us. Plenty of hands-on activities for kids, and the trains are...More

This is one cool museum. The collection of old locomotives is impressive. Go on a good weather day so you can spend time outside among the locomotives and attached cars. The round house building is a great indoor venue full of historic locomotives. Great for...More

I took my kids and my parents to this museum and I can not tell you who enjoyed it more! There is a lot of interesting railroad history, plus a chance to climb all over the massive trains.

Great museum with lots of trains you can even go inside some of them. Lovely model railway and cute outdoor railway for the kids. Go to Baltimore tourism website to get two for one ticket saving 18 dollars for two adults.

A family outing to this railroad museum to see the trains. It was also the weekend for the annual Day out with Thomas. Hot weather so the museum is not air conditioned. It was hot in there. Plenty of activities for the children. Photographic opportunities...More

Just fyi on this and other travels you may do, with some simple online research you can usually find discounts such as 2 for 1 coupons for the B&O railway museum. I agree with you that $16pp is a tad steep, but cut that in half and it becomes reasonable. Hope this helps.
