The place is free so definitely drop by especially if you are there on a train from Cumberland. The area is charming with a very small town atmosphere. Even if you have no interest in the history of carriages, you might be won over.

This was actually one of the best parts of our Western Maryland Railroad trip. It is free to get into with your train ticket - otherwise, I believe it was $2 for an adult.

This small museum has a collection of carriages from the time when they were the best method of transportation. Well worth a visit; if you take the Western Maryland Scenic Train, their ticket will get you in, but, in fairness, you should put something in their donation box.

A step back in time. The carriages are fascinating, especially the hearse. Ornate a plain. Quite a bariety and worth a peek on your layover in Frostburg. They do need to learn to be a little more cordial.

I was greeted by very rude lady. First she snip " no camera " When I was was just checking time. If that was not rude enough she then stated we are only open 15 more minutes. Nice carriages but need some manors.

A quick walkthrough while waiting for the train to go back. Interesting history. Would not go here on purpose, but it's at the train stop and worth going into while you wait

While it didn't knock my socks off, it was a fun and enjoyable experience. My fiancé and I went during our layover when we took the WMSRR,and we had a pleasant time.

This is an unusual collection of very nice carriages and sleighs. It is a small two story museum that doesn't take too long to go through.
