Trip Advisor Very nice Railroad Stop
Jul 22, 2014 by: ReneeH3 from Baltimore, Maryland
We went there this past weekend, with the kids ages 9,10,14. They all enjoyed the visit. The docent in the beginning was very sweet and welcoming. The kids were thrilled at being able to touch certain things, and play in the caboose.

Trip Advisor Gem of a Museum with Added Attraction in the Goods Shed
Jul 08, 2014 by: ManicUSAVisitor from London, England
A friendly greeting on arrival to this informative museum, starting at ground level then ascending to trackside level with more displays and the goods shed containing a model railway layout. It was here that I met the interesting custodian (part time) and after I had watched the layout for a while, spent over an hour talking about many subjects, making this a very enjoyable visit. I can't guarantee that he will always be there, but ask him if he has been to Scotland and if he has it's the right man.

the lego displays at christmas were pretty cool, but had they not been there my nephews would have been very bored at the exhibits.

Trip Advisor Disappointed

Personally disappointed with B&O Museum. Even my 3 year old wasn't impressed. Not much to see/do. I would not visit here again.

Trip Advisor Great museum

This is a fascinating museum, the rotunda building Is particularly interesting and well restored with an enormous number of exhibits. Some of the elderly volunteers are a bit unnecessarily grumpy with the children and need to lighten up, they should try to be a bit more welcoming rather than behaving like prison guards. The train ride down the sidings is a big underwhelming and I wouldn't advise doing it for the extra cost, the commentary is quite difficult to hear above the general hubbub in the train. I travelled to the museum by the free city charm bus, but felt a little insecure as it's situated in a bit of a dodgy area of the city.
