Take a train ride along the first commercial mile of railroad track laid in the country at B&O Railroad Museum. Built at the site of the oldest railroad station in the U.S., this museum traces the development of trains and displays an extensive collection of railroad memorabilia, a model railroad, and a working replica of the very first locomotive. Explore a historical roundhouse, observe what's happening in the engine shop, and wander through the gift shop to find souvenirs. With plenty of ramps throughout, the museum is wheelchair and stroller accessible. There is a play area for children as well as a snack bar. Train ride tickets for a short 20-mile ride are available for purchase on-site at the museum on a first come, first served basis.

  • It was interesting with a tour guide. No coat for this. Several retired guys happy to tell you about it. I am not a train collector, but I like history and machinery. Lots of displays. Several things you can get in. Kids would really enjoy. Teenagers are 50/50. Recommend by someone that had 2 teens and they really enjoyed it. It is very close to the baseball and football stadium. Safe & free parking inside the gate. Discounts for teens, kids and seniors. Would have liked a few more videos or audio.
  • B&O Farmers Market every Wednesday from 3 pm to 7 pm.
