Tiny volunteer Rail Road center is cute and obvious they pulled things together on a shoestring. Very interesting displays and video. Was nice to remember the trains. Again, nothing fancy but simple and obviously created by people who loved the old steam trains. Worth spending 30-45 minutes in between the more energetic attractions in CB...

I can't recommend this museum highly enough! It is packed full of artifacts, photos & fascinating information! I send all our guests to visit The Chesapeake Beach Railway Museum. If you're visiting Calvert County, it is not to be missed!

ALthough this is a small local museum, it is free and set up in an enjoyable fashion. The museum is about the history of the turn of the century resort that was fed by railroad and steamboat from Washington, D.C. and Baltimore. If you are looking for only the railraod history it is not an extensive collection. But for history buffs it is quite enjoyable. The onsite docent talked our ears off about the local history.

The museum is EXTREMELY small, less than 1000 square feet. The only "rolling stock" is one-half of a passenger car that is not even accessible to visitors.
