When you plan a trip to Baltimore, you should check out the B&O Railroad Museum where you can find fascinating exhibits on the "Birthplace of American Railroading." Affiliated with the Smithsonian Institute, Baltimore's museum is top notch in historic railroad exhibits, artifacts from the golden era of railroad travel, and more. 

The B&O Railroad Museum features an interesting collection dating back to the beginning of the American Railroad. Visitors will have the opportunity to see locomotives and stock, historic buildings, and several fascinating objects and artifacts. The Locomotives and Stock collection has 19th-century steam locomotives from the Baltimore and Ohio railroad as well as other railroads in Maryland. The collection also has small objects such as dining car china and silver, clocks, lanterns, communication devices, and pocket watches.

In the course of the visit, you will have the opportunity to see amazing historic structures like the Round House, a passenger car shop constructed in 1884. Also see the historic Mt. Clare Depot, the oldest at the B&O Railroad Museum built in 1851 housing exhibits that pertain to the telegraph and passenger travel.
