Very rude elderly white female volunteer verbally attacked me and belittled my friends. The museum itself is very beautiful, but the volunteer there is very selective as to who she hosts and who she targets. When I calmly asked to speak to the manager she...More

Wide assortment of old carriages and period piece costumes. We enjoyed the funeral carriages. If you enjoy carriages and this is your interest it is worth the time and effort to seek this place out.

Checked this out while on the Western Maryland railroad ride. Not really into carriages, but was interesting to see the different types and construction. A good way to kill some time if not interested in walking up the hill to Frostburg.

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. It only takes 1/2 hour or so to go through, but...More
