Trains once housed throngs of the nation's aristocrats and coal deposits, which led to an inordinate amount of melted monocles and top hats reporting the black lung.

  • For $50, you get a one-year family membership, which is good for two adults and up to four children under the age of 18 (a $100 value).

As the treasured sites of the first commercial long-distance track and passenger station in America, the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad Museum and Ellicott City Station harbor some of the oldest and most comprehensive collections of train relics in the world. At B&O, museum goers weave through the 40-acre campus to discover more than 200 pieces of finely preserved locomotive and rolling-stock materials, which are flanked by hundreds of thousands of artifacts such as tools, art, uniforms, and memorabilia. For more train-laden tutelage, visitors can peruse the Ellicott City Station––the oldest surviving railroad station in America––which hosts myriad seasonal exhibits and education programs that trumpet the history of transportation and travel. Both sites' trainy displays expertly lay out a timeline of America's railroad industry, its impact on culture, and the foolhardiness of starry-eyed tycoons.

Along with unlimited free admission to the museum and station, members can experience the bumps and gremlin-based braking systems of another era with B&O's free train rides Wednesdays through Sundays from April to December. Members can also take advantage of a 10% discount at the on-site and online store and receive advanced notice of special events and programs, such as The War Came By Train exhibit, which will feature the world's largest assemblage of railroad equipment used during the Civil War.
