B&O Railroad Museum

Table of Contents

In 1829, Baltimore businessmen and engineers gathered at this site to plan the first commercial long-distance train track in the United States: the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad. Today, in partnership with the Smithsonian Museum, this National Historic Landmark has grown to become the most important railroad collection in America.

You’ll find full-size locomotives, artifacts and tools, and extensive historical story-telling that puts the importance of Baltimore’s railroading industry into context; in 1835 the American Railroad Journal called the B&O “… the Railroad University of the United States,” and nearly 100 years later it has so much more to teach.
