I am delighted to share that the B&O Railroad Museum is poised for a spectacular summer season! Chuggington makes it first debut here in July.
Recognized as the birthplace of American railroading, the B&O Railroad Museum's 40-acre campus holds the most important, historic and comprehensive American railroad collection in the world. We are especially fortunate to be contiguous to the 150 acre historic Carroll Park, home to the restored Mount Clare Mansion. Constructed in 1756, and containing one of the most important collections of American furniture and decorative arts in the country, Mount Clare once opened its doors to the likes of John Adams, the Marquis de Lafayette and Martha Washington to name a few, and now stands to welcome you. Where else in the country can one experience 260 years of social and industrial history in one place?
Check out our calendar of events and plan, not just a few hours, but a day with us. We have exciting things happening all the time for the heritage tourist, the railroad historian, and children of all ages. The B&O is where you can discover your adventure.
That is why TripAdvisor has once again awarded us the coveted Certificate of Excellence, ranking the B&O amongst the top "things to do in Baltimore". Trains Unlimited in the 21st Century names us among the top 10 railway museums in the world.
Located blocks away from I-95, near so many popular attractions, and with expansive FREE parking, the B&O offers a marvelous day of discovery, learning and fun. We can't wait to see you.
