‪This is a great place to visit! There is a parking lot, but it is also within a pretty easy walk from the waterfront district. Once you buy your ticket in the gift shop, you get a map and can wander the museum as you please. The best part is the Roundhouse where you get to walk through the history of railroad cars and engines. You get to climb aboard many of the cars and see some really cool exhibits. Definitely a good spot for kids who love railroads. Outside the Roundhouse, you can see more cars. There is a great model train set in one of those along with a bunch of other cool stuff like the first refrigerated railcars.
You don't need to be a railroad enthusiast to enjoy this museum. The history and innovation elements are tied in to all the exhibits. ‬

‪I love trains, and my Dad lives in Maryland so when the weather got too cold and windy to go to Six Flags, I decided to go here and I loved every minute of it!

Pros:

- Place was massive, you can easily take multiple hours here! There's a separate exhibit building from the roundhouse, and even a couple things outside!

- The short train ride was fun!

- Staff is extremely friendly!

- Very quiet atmosphere, might depend on crowd size though.

- The museum was clean!

Nitpicks:

- Some of the exhibits do need cosmetic repairs.

Cons:

- One of the most beautiful locomotives in the museum was blocked by a tent promoting "Day Out With Thomas".

Here's some advice, when you hop on the train ride, the best views are in the right hand seats when you board the train, the left is just a bunch of trees.

I really enjoyed my experience with the B&O Railroad Museum and I am willing to come back!‬

‪The Select Registry 50th Anniversary Gala was hosted at this amazing museum. From the warm staff welcome to the gracious farewell, this property and staff were great! First, the museum was so interesting. Second, it was the perfect venue for anniversary celebration. Highly recommend you visit soon, and consider it for your next large function.‬

‪My grandson absolutely loved seeing and riding on the trains! It was interesting for the adults. They have a Cafe but just for snacks.‬

‪My family (8 adults and 6 kids) went to the polar express last weekend. We were all looking very forward to it however we were very disappointed. There was so much waiting for the first 30 minutes and when the conductor part started we were all so crowded that the kids couldn’t even see the performance of the favorite hot chocolate song. Then when on the train there wasn’t a whole lot for the kids to be engaged with. We had thought the train would be more interactive and engaging, considering the expensive pricetag per ticket. Also, Santa didn’t look like Santa, leaving my 4 year old asking me if he was a fake Santa. Overall I was very disappointed to have spent hundreds of dollars on this event.‬

‪Was on polar express and they advertised hot cocoa and cookie. We have two excited kids which were heartbroken when we get on the train and get a packet of hot cocoa and cookie and told can’t eat the cookie till off and obviously no hot cocoa.

They should have advertised this and saved us an afternoon of waiting and waiting only to have sad kids.

Save you money and find another polar express who actually serves. This isn’t a covid thing or else why pack us on?‬

‪It was terrible and not worth the money. The dancers didn’t even know how to stay in sync. The decorations were terrible on the train. They weren’t even dancing on the train. The Santa clause wasn’t even fat, his belt was literally falling off in the train. This attraction is definitely for children under 2. We drove 4 hours for this is was a terrible experience. Also since we were a big group we couldn’t all sit together because you don’t hav assigned seats. The train was going 2 miles per hour. Don’t waste your money 🤦🏽‍♀️‬

‪We drove 6.5 hours in traffic to get to the Polar Express and chose it over the train near us for the reviews and what we “thought” would be included from the description. First let me say that everyone was friendly and wonderful BUT the experience overall definitely was not worth the money paid, especially when you add a hotel to that. The experience was supposed to start at 7pm but apparently they make ALL experiences wait in line for 30 minutes before they start. There is supposed to be a “dance party” at the end of the line but barely anyone participated and it didn’t seem much like a party. No one wanted to get out of line as it was not explained to anyone the show would start where we were. Having children wait for 20 minutes outside (we arrived early of course) then another 30 minutes in line is not the best start to the experience…does the management know children’s patience levels?
So the train itself was decorated beautifully but they said “due to COVID” they didn’t punch tickets that was clearly stated in the experience. THIS WAS ALL MY CHILDREN WANTED! And although the rest of the country is mostly back to normal, they didn’t do hot chocolate or cookies at all on the train but instead gave us a bag. So therefore, NO HOT CHOCOLATE, NO COOKIES, NO TICKET PUNCHING on the train ride. Therefore, I had to give my children hot chocolate and cookies at 10pm when we got back which made for a hyper sleepless night.
On the positive side, once we actually did the Polar express and got off (literally the same way so older children know we were in the same place--- maybe they could change the light colors with LED lighting on the walkway), the museum was great! They didn’t rush anyone to leave and they pictures with Santa were nice. There were many activities and fun for the children. I loved the bubble snow and wish they could have done it a little longer than a few minutes. This part was great.
I would not recommend this to families that want their children to think they are actually on the real Polar Express, or those with children that don't sit well in lines over 30 minutes. If you do go, know everyone is friendly but know what it does NOT come with.‬

‪We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to the museum. The roundhouse is spectacular! It’s filled with a wide variety of train engines, train cars, and other related items including some very rare or “last-one-remaining” ones.
The model trains in the museum hall were amazing! The volunteer we spoke to was very informative, explaining and demonstrating how the “Clearance car” worked. And I overheard some interesting commentary from one of the other guides as well. There is also a train-themed play area for children.
I especially appreciated that there are ramps and decks connecting the train cars so that the inside views are easily accessible to everyone. Due to my physical limitations, the museum was too large for me to visit all at one time (over forty acres!) But when we had walked as much I as could, I enjoyed sitting for a rest in one of the many comfortable rocking chairs placed around the beautiful, sunny roundhouse.
Note Re: accessibility: A website for handicapped travelers (not the official museum web site) mentioned that scooters were available at the museum for rent. I didn’t realize until we got there, that they meant those little narrow scooters you can stand on, not the mobility scooters that I normally use. (Wish those had been an option.)
The only minor little snag was that there was no one at the check-in desk when we arrived and we stood there for awhile waiting until finally another guest came over to tell us we needed to go into the gift shop area to buy our tickets. (There was still no one there when we left, and other people were standing there patiently waiting for no one.). If there isn’t going to be anyone to cover that desk it would be nice if there were at least a sign so people don’t stand there waiting on the kindness of strangers to direct them.
To buy tickets, you have to stand in the same line that people are using to buy gifts and souvenirs . Although the young woman appeared to be working as hard as she could, the line was quite long and very slow. Would be nice if they had more staff to help in that area.
But overall, a very enjoyable and informative visit.‬

‪The museum was clean and appropriate for children ages 0-2 or 10 and above. It was a complete bust for our 4-year old. Parents of young children, DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY. We paid extra to attend a special "Pumpkin Patch" event. It was terrible and my child was disappointed to the point of tears. I called several days ahead and spoke to a museum employee to ensure I understood what to expect, since we would be driving from 2 hours away. I hesitated to invest in an activity my daughter might not like. The employee clarified that Halloween costumes were acceptable and explained the train ride was approximately twenty minutes each way, for a 40 minute ride total. We absolutely needed to use restrooms and board 30 minutes before train departure to maximize time at the stable. He confirmed the train was decorated for Halloween. Children would pick pumpkins at a patch, receive a stable tour, then meet the horses. After another twenty minute ride back to the museum, families could decorate the pumpkins in a designated area, play games, and take rides. THIS DID NOT HAPPEN. The train boarded five minutes before departure. Decorations consisted of one string of unlit purple "Christmas" lights, and about $10 worth of Dollar Tree Halloween decorations spread across two long cars. The ride was less than two (2) minutes long. (I know because I timed it on the way back. We left the stable at 12:39pm and arrived at the museum at 12:41pm.) There was no pumpkin patch. Store bought mini-pumpkins were placed on the grass for children to select. No stable tour. Only one (1) horse was available, and they took each family one at a time to greet it. Everyone had to wait in line. When we got to Slurpee the horse, we only had a minute or so before the next family cycled in. The horse was beautiful but we felt cheated by the lack of time with him. Carnival games were corn hole boxes and there were no tokens or rides. The only saving graces back at the museum were the refreshments (individually packaged Walmart cookies and CapriSun pouches) and paint/glitter/markers they provided to decorate the pumpkins. The event wasn't worth the $85 admission fee for three people, and certainly not worth the 4-hour round-trip drive at $3.20+/gallon for gas. I wish the museum employee had been honest about the event. Most of the other parents also voiced disappointment and anger. The marketing and concept were brilliant, but the execution lackluster. It was a waste of a perfectly beautiful day. The only spooky part was inching through 4 hours of delays along the Baltimore-Washington Parkway. Additional note for out-of-state visitors: The unisex bathrooms are compliant with local law. The museum provides a nursing chair in the bathroom without urinals, and there are infant changing tables in both main bathrooms.‬
