“Awesome collection!”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

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.

“Frostburg visit”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

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.

“Awesome display - free”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

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 to Cumberland.

“Excellent museum by the train depot”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

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. I highly recommend this place! Admission is free with a train ticket.
