From the Desk of Courtney B. Wilson:
When Chuggington rolled into the B&O the weekend of July 30th-August 1st nearly 5,500 visitors stormed our gates in downtown Baltimore. The entire 3-day weekend was an amazing debut of this new event for kids with a sell-out crowd and is real testament to the popularity of the Disney Channel locomotive “trainees” Wilson, Brewster and Koko.
This Fall we have an incredible line up of fun and informative things to do from a behind the scenes Restoration Shop Tour in September to Steaming Saturdays with live steam powered train rides throughout October and a very special Witches and Wizards Day on October 24th.
But wait, that’s not all. I am extremely excited to announce the debut of The Polar Express at the B&O the weekend following Thanksgiving! This amazing train ride experience will be like none other ever seen at the B&O. The music, the story, dancing chefs serving hot chocolate and a visit at the top of the world-The North Pole-to see Santa Claus will delight adults and children alike. Watch for the announcement of when tickets will go on sale!
Of course anytime is a great time to visit. 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.
Don’t forget to visit the Ellicott City Station, the oldest railroad station in the Western Hemisphere and the 1765 Mount Clare Museum House too.
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.
