8 things you need to know and a look at the B&O Museum’s Underground Railroad exhibition

October 14, 2022

Last week I had the incredible opportunity to tour the B&O Railroad Museum’s new exhibition that examines the historic railroad’s part in the Underground Railroad network of the early-to-mid-1800s.  The Underground Railroad: Freedom Seekers on the B&O Railroad is a new permanent exhibition at the Southwest Baltimore museum and opened late last month. It is located within the museum’s historic Mt. Clare Station that for many years served as a storage space before being given this new purpose. I won’t give too much away because I highly recommend checking it out for yourself, but the three-room exhibit has interactive features for kids, a replica ticket window and a multi-wall video and audio projection experience. The latter tells the stories of two freedom seekers who passed through Baltimore on their way from slavery to freedom.
