  • Let me start off by saying that if you're a railfan, this is for you. If you have small children, then also this is for you! This two story museum does have a whole lot as far as displays, there's one very large trainboard, comparable with the one in roadside america, in Shartlesville, Pa. Several smaller ones as well. Admission (2016) is a modest $5.00 for adults, with children ages 4 - 12 costing .50. There are tracks on the side of the museum, with a few train cars, however they were locked. In my opinion this is a good spot for smaller kids, aged 2 -5. Has a small gift shop. Ample parking, accepts visa and master card.
  • We have taken the grandchildren there annually for several years and they love it. There are displays, interactive layouts, etc. Good, inexpensive fun for the entire family.
  • The museum hosts a variety of artifacts of the Western Maryland Railway along with model displays that are very detailed and accurate replicas of the real railroad.
  • Top notch railroad displays and running train platforms (O and HO gauges), great volunteers who know all sorts of history and love talking it. Finally a little to see on the first floor for those who are unable to make the climb up the huge flight of stairs (the only drawback here).
  • Great place for train enthusiasts to learn about trains and railroad history in Hagerstown MD
