The railroad museum is a fantastic place to tour if you're into trains. There are so many types of trains and locomotives, with so much interesting history attached to them. I have already recommended this museum to people that have an interest in trains. They...More

Good place to take kids, but lots to see for all ages. Stay away from "Thomas the Tank Engine" event, however, as impossibly crowded (and advance reservations required).

Great little museum on the B&O railroad. Lots of cool historical trains and cars on display. Two minor complaints. 1. It's in the middle of a bad neighborhood, so never ever park on the street. You also have to drive through bad neighborhoods to get...More

This historic roundhouse yard has been transformed into a museum well worth a visit by any railroad enthusiast. There are multiple historic engines and rail cars. But the section that took my breadth away was the north engine house, where you can find some of...More

We did not allow nearly enough time to explore this museum. For train-buffs, it's is a real gem. You can sit right in the engineer's seat of several steam engines, and the children are allowed to play with all the levers and dials. Staff are...More

Loved this museum. Took my 3 year old son and it was very interactive and held my sons attention throughout. The train trip was great as it was not long but gave you the experience that I wanted my son to have.

An amazing collection of railroading history. Excellent restorations...clever exhibits. Opportunities to ride, to climb aboard locomotives, to learn from volunteers and staff who are expert sources of knowledge and love to teach

I visited for a holiday party. This place can be completely transformed. There is an area for a dance floor and everything. They have all types of train shows here and it is a great place to take the kids.

"Two-fers" are a good deal if you can 1) find them and 2) plan ahead for your excursion to the museum (or anywhere for that matter!) For solo travelers, it won't cost you any more than your ticket might have and there is a... More
