A message from Michael Gross…
As a lifelong railroad enthusiast, historian and modeler, I became familiar with the B&O Railroad Museum in the late 1970s when I was an artist in residence at a regional theater in Baltimore. The Museum immediately captured my heart and I have since followed this beloved railroad icon over the years as my hobby and interests have matured. It is truly one of the most important railroad heritage sites in the world. From its unmatched parade of locomotives and rolling stock, monumental buildings, vast archival and artifact collections to its innovative public programs, it is a unique place where the adventure and magic of railroading comes alive every day.
If you have never visited this great Museum you simply must! If you are a member or have been here before come back! Programs and exhibits are changing constantly, and every kid--young or old--will have fun as there’s always something to be found that even I haven’t discovered before. The B&O is not just a static museum. Spread across their 40-acre campus is so much to see, so many activities to do and experiences to have. Rekindle your love of trains here--there’s no better place.
I am proud to be the celebrity spokesman for the B&O and encourage your interest and support for their important work.
Michael E. Gross
