Trip Advisor Worth a peek
Apr 11, 2015 by: HansLudwig2014 from Dayton, Ohio
Small museum with lots of interesting RR history and artifacts. The place really does enhance the already charming town/village of Ellicott City. If you are a "rail-fan" spending less than an hour is insufficient.

Trip Advisor MUST-SEE in Washington - Baltimore area

Excellent museum. Easy parking. This museum is a MUST VISIT if you are in the DC-Baltimore area. Beautiful restored round-house. Many locomotives and wagons. At least worth half a day visit.

We always enjoy visiting this place. It's small but fun. The train display is always a treat, you learn a bit about railroads and the history around Ellicott City.

Trip Advisor Adds to Ellicott City's Atmosphere

While the museum itself is quite small and uneventful, it is an historic landmark worth noticing during a visit to Ellicott City. A beautiful stone building, the station adds to Ellicott City's already charming historic atmosphere, and is nice place for photo ops. It's worth noting that this is the site of the famous Tom Thumb vs. horse drawn carriage race.

Trip Advisor Well worth the price of admission

Something for visitors of all ages, train buffs, history buffs, little kids. The bonus is that a real train runs right by the museum at intervals announced by the ringing of the bell so that everyone can go to the platform and watch. Admission is so reasonable that even a short visit is doable.
