Come celebrate the legacy of American labor at the Birthplace of American Railroading!

B&O workers laid the very rails which sparked the spread of industry across the United States and would change the nation forever. To honor these railroaders and the many working-class heroes that we all depend on today, we’re hosting a track cleanup and our Working on the Railroad tour throughout the holiday weekend.  

Weekend Schedule:

Saturday, September 3 

Sunday, September 4 

Monday, September 5

$1.00 Admission Day!

* To sign up for the trash cleanup, email to receive necessary information and forms. Participants must be aged 14 and up. Those under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

Those who participate in the trash cleanup will receive free admission to the museum following the cleanup.
