The B&O’s Big Birthday Bash

February 27, 2021 @ 11:00 am

Included with admission

It’s the 194th birthday of the B&O Railroad, and you’re invited to the party! Join us for family-friendly festivities all day long as we celebrate the legacy of the B&O and the wonder of American railroading. First little engineers can enjoy an interactive STEAM Streamlining Workshop, using paper airplanes to represent early locomotive designs and explore why some models are faster than others. Then, take a 12:30 PM train ride along the nation’s first mile of commercial railroad! After the train ride, get ready for our birthday balloon drop, in which you have the chance to win special prizes including Day Out With Thomas tickets, Museum passes, and more! Once the balloons have dropped, you’ll receive refreshments and a goodie bag to take home, and have the opportunity on-site here at the Museum to purchase your tickets for this year’s Day Out With Thomas! And finally, don’t miss our B&O No. 51 tour at 2:30 PM to learn about the challenges and triumphs our team faced in restoring the first ever streamlined diesel-electric locomotive!

All offerings except train ride are included with regular Museum admission. Train ride tickets may be purchased on-site. See full schedule of events below.
