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.

The roundhouse was my favorite part, because it gives a true feel for what goes on in a roundhouse—the cars are stationary, but seeing the actual tracks is eye-opening.
