We stopped in the Roads and Rails Museum as we passed through Frederick, MD on our way to another destination and we are really glad we did! This display is a true labor of love (it took 5 years to build!) and so full of...More

There are a lot of great train displays that are operating year round - this place isn't one of them. The very first thing I noticed was the dust & debris on the garden itself. Next, conservatively over half of the operating portions of the...More

Fun little stop in Frederick. Very impressive how large the model train display was. We enjoyed their Lego room, it was fun finding all the different and some unique characters in the Lego display

Bored this MLK holiday, too cold to hike, sitting at home, 45 min from Frederick, saw this place on Trip Advisor. Little villages, figures, and trains sound great to my husband, who loves this sort of thing, so away we went. Tucked in a building...More
