To coincide with our new exhibition, The Underground Railroad: Freedom Seekers on the B&O Railroad, acclaimed storyteller Diane Macklin will be performing a blend of American stories and traditions with African roots.

This fun, interactive, family program will highlight American wit and wisdom with African roots. Listeners of all ages are welcome. We recommend you catch the 1 PM train ride, then settle in for a feast of stories. 

Mile One Express Train Ride tickets available for purchase on site.

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