Trip Advisor Great place for info. on history of railroad with many attractions.
Jul 29, 2014 by: William F from Erie, Pennsylvania
I really enjoyed all the info and all the locomotives and carriages in the museum. They have a round table in there and you can also go into the steam engines and railroad cars of the past. Largest steam engine on the railroad on display there. If you are a past or present employee of the B&O or CSX railroad, you get great discounts. The current contribution is only $5 per adult. Great place to visit for all you rairoad buffs.

This is worth stopping at if you are in the Camden Yard area. Very interesting factual presentation of Baltimore's role in the Civil War.

Trip Advisor Wonderful Museum

Great museum with lots of beautifully restored engines and train cars. The roundhouse is fantastic. This was a visit for myself and my husband, but I couldn't help but notice how nicely they have created areas for young children to enjoy. The model train (ho scale) was nicely done. Really enjoyed this visit and was happy that we added this on to our trip at the last minute.

My husband, being a B&O railroad enthusiast, has long wanted to visit this museum. He enjoyed it very much. The museum is immaculate, roundhouse included. We were impressed with all the engines, and with the volunteer staff...they were so helpful and knowledgeable! I especially enjoyed the clock room! There was even an area especially for children. The only drawback as far as my husband was concerned was that he would have liked to have seen more of the tools and equipment that workers used to build the railroad. Overall, a very good experience. I would highly recommend it!

Trip Advisor Lots of railroad cars

If you like trains this is a place for you. They have a beautiful roundhouse which houses steam engines. There is also another building with more trains and a couple platforms with trains. There is a daily train ride which we missed. This is where the first set of tracks were set down in america. There is a ho model set in one of the train cars. Also an exhibit of some train china. Outside there is a place to get a snack and a larger model train running outside. Parking is free. The area around the museum was a little suspect so I would recommend using the museum parking.
