Field Trip: B & O Railroad Museum

The B & O Railroad Museum in Baltimore, Maryland is a lovely little museum...
 The exhibits begin in this most gorgeous roundhouse building...
 with trains all around.

 They have lots of little exhibits; this month they were on the Civil War and trains...
 with interactive children's exhibits such as this "Fill the Soldier's sack" activity...
What would you carry if you were a soldier?

Note: The North Car Shop has most of the hands-on train displays.
The One Mile Out 20 minute train ride is offered Wednesday - Sunday, March 31, 2012 - December and weekends in January. (There are no train rides from February 1 - March 30, 2012) $3.00 per ticket for adults, $2.00 per ticket for children (2-12)
