Spend part of your Spring Break at the B&O!

This fun and upbeat tour teaches children about the types of freight cars used on the railroad! Using America’s favorite fruit, the banana, students will explore how the banana gets from farms to their tables. 

Tours begin at the information desk in the Roundhouse. Recommended for Pre-Kindergarten through 2nd grade.  


Program included with Museum Admission. FREE for B&O Members.
