Very well done train museum that had something for everyone! Great roundabout, restored cars and historical perspective of the B&O during the civil war. Lots of hands on exhibits to keep the 10yr old occupied and lots of stuff for the little ones. They had a nice room on the telegraph in addition to an HO gauge mini train set along with a G gauge outdoor setup. We went in with a BOGO coupon from Maryland tourism found online through couponsforfun/md. Made the excursion affordable. It is about 1.5 miles from Inner Harbour area so a reasonable walk on a nice day.
A MUST FOR RAIL FANS

Plenty to see here and very friendly and informative volunteers. You can also ride on the preserved first mile and half of railroad laid in the USA.

The Museum advertises itself as covering over 40 acres and it felt like it. Old steam engines take up a lot of space! The exhibits were well done and most of the signage was well done or at least adequate. The docents we chatted with were pleasant and knowledgeable. The museum appeared to be kid friendly and those we saw we really enjoying it. The Museum itself is just a short ride from the inner harbor on the free circulator bus.

I used to love going there as a child, then later in years I catered and did many jobs there...If you love History, Baltimore and Trains...this is the place for you

Went here on a whim. What a beautiful museum. Not as big as Strasburg, but in a very nice setting and excellent for younger children.
