Celebrate Black History Month with the B&O Railroad Museum!

Doors: 4 PM | Showtime: 6:15 PM

Join us for a free screening of Hidden Figures, an amazing true story about the three African American female mathematicians that served as the brains behind the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit and his safe return. Settle in with your blankets, enjoy light refreshments, and watch Dorothy Vaughn, Mary Jackson, and Katherine Johnson prove the value of their bright minds despite racial and gender boundaries.

Doors open at 4 PM for exploration of the Roundhouse and guests are invited to attend a special guided tour of the Underground Railroad Exhibition at 5 PM. The film screening will begin at 6:15 PM.
