Wide assortment of old carriages and period piece costumes. We enjoyed the funeral carriages. If you enjoy carriages and this is your interest it is worth the time and effort to seek this place out.

This was actually one of the best parts of our Western Maryland Railroad trip. It is free to get into with your train ticket - otherwise, I believe it was $2 for an adult.

This small museum has a collection of carriages from the time when they were the best method of transportation. Well worth a visit; if you take the Western Maryland Scenic Train, their ticket will get you in, but, in fairness, you should put something in their donation box.
This was a great place they have carriages and sleigh dating way back also all the harnesses that they used on the horse.If you take the train ride it stops in front of this for about 90min.
A quick walkthrough while waiting for the train to go back. Interesting history. Would not go here on purpose, but it's at the train stop and worth going into while you wait
