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.

This is a beautiful place hidden in Baltimore where a lot of people think it's bad city to visit. The Museum is not too far from downtown area to its east. However if you go a little farther to its west it can be a quite different scene. The museum has done a great job to display quite a few various locomotives from the past. It would be a nice place for the kids to learn our train and transportation development history.
Took our train obsessed son here last week and he was in heaven and I was amazed at how beautiful the inside of the roundhouse was. Everything was immaculate, informative, and welcoming. They give you a cool paper for your child to find stamps around the museum and get a small prize at the end. Tons of kids activities indoors, play area outside with carousel. We had a really nice time.
Really wonderful place to visit. Lots to see and learn about. Even fairly easy to get to with on-site parking lot.
We had so much fun!! Between the trains, being able to get on most of them and explore and the train history museum with the history of clocks and communication we were never bored. There's plenty to do inside and outside as well. Perfect family day
The history of people and the trains was interesting. I learned a lot. It was freezing in there. They didn't even turn heat on for the train ride. The kids had to eat lunch at the outside pavilion. It was no where inside to eat.
