The museum incorporates the 19th-Century roundhouse, and they have a very comprehensive collection of trains. Lots of activities for kids, too, including a carousel for the little ones.

We spent several hours here - probably a bit more than most - but there were so many things to see relating to trains. I've been fascinated with trains since I was a little boy, and the B&O Museum didn't disappoint. Too many exhibits to...More

If you like trains, the history and variety of this old train depot is spectacular. The train cars are beautiful and the round about is a fine example of how the train system functioned within the city. Very colorful, very impressive, and photo ops abound.

Yes, plenty of locomotives and train cars and great description of this rail road company. What I was hoping for though were more of the large steam engines and Stream Liners. This museum displays more of early models from later 1800s to early 1900s.

I'm not necessarily a train buff, and the Mrs. even less so. Still, we managed to have a nice time touring the museum. The roundhouse is very cool, and some of the old locomotives and cars they have restored are really neat. They still had...More

It somewhat depends upon your interest of trains. My dad is a big railroad buff and we spent a good 2 hours walking around. there are a lot of train cars and locomotives you can climb aboard and see as well as a model... 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.
