Baltimore & Ohio Railroad Museum

Located in Baltimore, Maryland, the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad Museum features extensive exhibits of historic American railroad equipment. Originally named the Baltimore & Ohio Transportation Museum when it opened in 1953, today it is considered one of most significant collections of railroad equipment in the world and has the largest collection of 19th-century locomotives in the United States. The museum is located on the grounds of the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad's former Mount Clare Station and roundhouse, part of the large Mount Clare Shops site that dates back to 1829 -- the oldest railroad manufacturing complex in the United States. The museum's collection includes 250 pieces of rolling stock, several 19th railroad buildings, and over a mile of track.
