This was very nice little trip with very helpful staff.Museum free with ticket from steam train.Lot's of old horse drawn vehicles.You can take pictures if you like. If you are taking the steam train & getting off to visit Frostburg. This is a better option than the hike up the steps to see Frostburg.

Various carriages, sleighs, etc. Ignore the signs that say no photographs. The staff welcomed photos. The ladies were well informed and engaging. Donations accepted....be sure to help if you can.

The little carriage museum at the train station has an interesting selection of old horse-drawn vehicles. Assorted period amenities displayed with and on the carriages brings them alive in the imagination. This is a good 30 minutes visit and worth the time.

This museum is free with your Western Maryland Scenic Train ride. Don't miss this place when you are in Frostburg. Restrooms are available. It's two floors of antique carriages - some from the Roosevelts. Would visit it longer and read more about each carriage in depth if there was enough time between when we had to board the train back... More

This small but comprehensive museum was a very pleasant surprise and great way to fill time before the train headed back to Cumberland. They have a beautiful and varied collection on two floors of many types of carriages and sleighs, including a milk wagon. There are a few life-size model horses showing some of the beautiful tack they often wore.... More

We stopped in the museum after walking down from Frostburg on our layover from the train ride. Nice little museum well kept and worth a visit. Both of the guides inside were busy telling stories and answering questions and seemed to enjoy their jobs.

We drove to Frostburg just to see this and glad we did. The collection is huge and well maintained. Had a long chat with very knowledgeable docent about the history of the collection. Well worth seeing. Stop in at end of train ride or around noon as the museum is only open when the train is there.
