Museum Monday: Baltimore & Ohio Railroad Museum

November 22nd, 2010 by WLOY Staff

Looking to learn more about Baltimore’s unique history and fame? What better place than the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad Museum. After all, it’s on the museum’s 40 acres that the first commercial long-distance track was born, giving us the nation’s truly unique railroad system.

From taking (holiday) train rides, climbing into a steam locomotive, watching toy trains pass through the garden, and viewing railroad movies in theater cars, there’s plenty to keep you busy at the museum. You’ll be amidst history as you look through nearly 200 pieces of rolling stock and locomotives and thousands of small artifacts like pocket watches, communication devices, lanterns, and dining car china that cover the start of American railroading in 1830 through present day.

Not only will you get a hands-on feel for Baltimore, but the museum is the oldest, most comprehensive American railroad collection. Art is great, but this unparalleled collection deserves an appreciation all its own. Who can deny the railroads?
