  • Nothing more to say about the museum, it's worth the time to visit. The garage is finished now and there's plenty of parking. Easy access to the restaurant, the museum and the casino. The casino...

  • We were in town after biking the Chesapeake Bay Railway Trail and decided to see the museum. It's small but full of fascinating local history I'd never heard of. At the turn on the century...

  • Fascinating little museum celebrating life in Chesapeake Beach in the early to mid 20th century, especially when the railway was active. The museum staff was friendly and have us an interesting tour of the exhibits.
  • 125 year old historic location. Nice & cute with some cool exhibits. And it's free!
  • Very polite staff, knowledgeable, and free! I did not see a bathroom but there is a Rod and Reels resort with a bathroom right across the street.
  • Our kids loved this place when they were young. We still visit occasionally. There's lots of good historical information that concerns both railroading and the history of southern Maryland. The museum is small enough for a younger child to get a good embrace of it, but has enough by way of exhibits and information to hold his/her attention. Over the years, the staff have been unfailingly knowledgeable, and pleasant. They generally love kids. This is a great place for children (5 or 85).
  • This is a place worthy of a detailed tour. The information about the railway, the era when it was popular, and the surrounding regions economic condition, is a very interesting and worthwhile study. Plus that they present family fun days twice a year is twice the pleasure when you have younger children who want something unique. Even being a small, County run Museum, it's worth multiple hours with teenagers who can pay attention or research the railway history information.
