The roundhouse was my favorite part, because it gives a true feel for what goes on in a roundhouse—the cars are stationary, but seeing the actual tracks is eye-opening.

I love that the museum is what remains of the old train yard and the number and variety of train cars is remarkable.

This was an amazing museum to visit! A must see in Baltimore. Starting with the ease of parking...Right onsite and FREE!

As you moved through the roundhouse it felt like you were following a cohesive storyline through the early history of the railroad.

We did the train ride and our guide on board was excellent (history/information for the parents).
