The oldest railroad station in America lives up to its name. If you love trains or just want a little better understanding of how they impacted American history, this is the place to visit. Well-versed staff tell you all about early the B&O days in Maryland, and the changing exhibits relate to various time periods. Of special interest are those involved with the Civil War. Not to be missed: the train layouts put up for the Christmas season. I always enjoy talking to the folks who work there, and have met many guest from other countries who have heard about this little gem of a museum. There are few interactive displays, but the kids will still enjoy the HO model train layout depicting the first 13 miles of the B&O. Note that the hours and days are limited, so check out the schedule before visiting.
