CURRENT TEMPORARY EXHIBIT

 FIRST TO FIGHT

Railroaders in WWI
May 24 - August

From an Army Railway Engineers uniform in the B&O's collection which bears the name D. Yates, we have created the composite character of David Yates, through whom to tell the story of railroaders in WWI. As the first Americans to see combat in WWI, these men were called upon to face the horrors of the Front — where there was a dire need for soldiers with railroad expertise. Experience the story of these brave railmen, the women at home who took over their jobs on the B&O, and much more through First to Fight: Railroaders in WWI.   Exhibit opens Friday, May 24 to kick off our Merci! - Weekend of Gratitude during Memorial Day Weekend.


UPCOMING TEMPORARY EXHIBITS for 2019

PROTECTING THE LINE
The First Railroad Police Unit in the Nation
August - September
The B&O Railroad established the first railroad police unit in 1847. The legacy of this unit lives on through the modern-day CSX police. This exhibit highlights railroad police history and provides a peek into the Museum's future with the opening of First Mile Stables, a new home for Baltimore City's Mounted Police Unit.
