Grand Re-Opening Announcement
The Hagerstown Roundhouse Museum is excited to finally announce our Grand Re-Opening on July 2nd, 2021. To celebrate this occasion we will be hosting a limited “Railroad Heritage Days” at the museum on July 2nd, 3rd & 4th from 1 pm-5 pm.
Over the past 15 months, our volunteers have been hard at work to improve the museum. We will be premiering our new N scale layout alongside our improved 2 Rail O Scale layout, 2 HO layouts, our 3 Rail O Scale layouts which include, Children’s layout, Midwood Layout, and everyone’s favorite the Winter Wonderland layout. We will also be opening some of our outside rolling stock for tours. Please join us on this special occasion. Normal admission prices will apply.
The museum would like to thank everyone for their patience during this trying time. In an effort to operate in a safe manner for all we would request masks be worn inside and social distancing be maintained.
