We’re welcoming four-legged friends back to the B&O! Dogs will have a blast during this afternoon of exploration and play at the B&O Railroad Museum — and don’t worry, there are plenty of treats for owners too! Hit up our photo booth, including props, to take pictures with your pups that you’ll cherish forever, take a train ride to a puppy play date at Carroll Park, and finish off the day with a Yappy Hour under the B&O’s spacious outdoor pavilion. And for Halloween fun, dress up your dog to join in a special doggie costume contest! Tickets include one free beer or wine during Yappy Hour! See full schedule of events below.

Non-Members: $20, B&O Members: $15
