This museum is one of the best railroad museums in the world. It has the largest and most excellent collection of historic railroad equipments of the 19th century in the US. The railroad museum covers a huge area enclosing all of the Mount Clare station, the adjacent roundhouse and also the Mount Clare Shops where there is situated the museum gift shop at present.

The museum was known as The Baltimore and Ohio Transportation Museum when it was first opened in the year 1953. Apart from just boasting of a fantastic collection of locomotives of the 19th and 20th centuries, they also have conserved mechanical parts and instruments related to railways and coaches. The Mount Clare area is said to be the birthplace of America’s Railroad culture and thus the museum was designated to the position of a National Historic Landmark.

The Ellicott City Station is also a part of this museum. This is the oldest station of the country. Here you will see models of very old passenger engines and coaches. There are also replicas of locomotives used during the wars of the past. Altogether this is one place that is worth a visit by each one who visits the city.

  • This place was amazing and had great history stories to go along with it. They have plenty of trains to view and even trains that you can walk on. A nice kids play area. We also went on a train ride and the conductors were great. I was shocked to see how clean their restrooms are and that they have a nursing station set aside for nursing mothers. Great experience and we will definitely be back.

  • Loved it except the fact that they only had a vending machine for snacks. We thought there was food in the museum, it was late when we realized it was only open during weekends. :( But still the exhibits are amazing. My son spent the bulk of his time playing in the caboose.

  • Unlike other rail museums, this museum has full size rail cars, in addition to miniature models. Some civil war era rail cars are arranged in a "roundhouse" building, with placards explaining their history. Don't miss the rail cars in the parking lot. Some of them carried famous people such as President Lincoln. Visiting the parking lot portion is free. They also offer a 1-mile train ride on the first mile of B&O Railroad. The ride is narrated, but there isn't much new information, and the old MARC train is in poor condition. I do not recommend this train ride.

  • Awesome historical train museum. 1 year old liked it and so did I. Gets hot in summer since no air conditioning. Ample parking.
