From August 14 to 18, 2017, celebrate summer at the B&O with Beach Bound Rail Adventures! Discover your end of summer adventure with fun hands-on activities to keep kids entertained and engaged.

Activities include story times, Grabby Grabby Crabs games, sand fun, boat building, a kinetic run-through water garden (swim suits & towels recommended), bounce house, and Thomas the Train Power Wheels!

Plus, don’t miss the train rides! Train Ride departs promptly at 11:30 am Thursday & Friday and tickets are $3 for adults, $2 for children with paid admission.

The B&O Railroad Museum offers guests the opportunity to see, touch, hear, and explore the oldest and most historic American Railroad collection at the Baltimore campus of the B&O (Baltimore & Ohio) Railroad Museum. Known as the birthplace of the American railroad, the museum features both full-size locomotives and model replicas. Visitors can explore inside locomotives and train cars, view historic railroad artifacts, and even enjoy a 20-minute, round-trip train ride along the first commercial mile of railroad track laid in America!

For the younger crowd, there is Choo Choo Blueville, a fictional town personalized by the B&O Railroad Museum’s new mascot Choo Choo Blue. This beautifully-landscaped structure with running water measures 4,700-square feet in diameter, displays 12 miniature buildings, and offers children a sound-scaped, three-minute kiddie train.

The B&O Railroad Museum is located at 901 West Pratt St., Baltimore, MD 21223. Connect: Online | Facebook | Twitter | (410) 752-2490.
