The B& O Museum was very interesting. The bust of Mr. Carroll was a little creepy when it started to talk, but it was fun to see. Wished we had had more time to spend here.

Attended a family wedding here and was blown away. Such a beautiful place for an event. The building itself is pretty, but the history of all the trains add a lovely touch. Loved every minute!
