Explore the B&O with your students from the classroom or right from home.
In order to support teachers and students from all different learning environments and locations, the B&O Railroad Museum is offering many of our field trip programs as either on-site or virtual experiences. Our tours and Railroad Storytime program can be easily adapted for virtual learning while our workshops still require an in-person visit.
For more information on our Field Trip Program, both virtually and in-person, download our Student Group Guide.
