The Hagerstown Roundhouse Museum located at 300 South Burhans Boulevard, Hagerstown, Maryland, USA, has exhibits relating to local railroad history and model railroads.
The Hagerstown Roundhouse Complex was built in 1939. The 25 stall roundhouse and shops were the major facility for maintenance and repairs of locomotives and cars in Western Maryland. The railroads were the largest employers in Washington County for more than 50 years. The Roundhouse facility was demolished on March 13, 1999.
The Hagerstown Roundhouse Museum is located adjacent to the CSX Railroad in Hagerstown, Maryland. The volunteer-run museum features many exhibits relating to local railroad history, several model railroads in operation, and an outdoor collection of locomotives, passenger cars, and rolling stock.
The roundhouse facility was demolished in 1999, but the museum inhabits some of the smaller adjacent buildings and sits in proximity to CSX Transportation's Hagerstown Terminal yard and locomotive servicing area.

  • This is my grandson's favorite place to go on the weekends! The volunteers are extremely friendly, very knowledgeable, and a lot of fun to talk with. Great for all ages. Several rooms/areas on two floors with different gauge trains. Also some hands-on areas for the younger train lovers.
  • Excellent place to take the family and children to experience the history of the local railroad industry; as well as the entertainment of watching and hands on displays of the elaborate model constructions.
