    Go into the roundhouse and stare up. Marvel at the architecture. It's amazing. The scale of the whole place is impressive.

    Home to the most powerful steam engine locomotive ever built! Take time to explore the Civil War history of the B&O in “The War Came By Train” exhibit here until 2015.

    Amazing: great for train lovers as well as history buffs. The Civil War exhibit also has tons of African-American history. And it's off the free Circulator's Orange Route!

    They have a penny squish machine (four different designs) in the entrance room of the museum. You do not have to pay admissions to use it :)
