Did you know…that the Gaitherburg Railroad Station was a major rail complex when it was build all the way back in 1884? Well, now you do!
The Gaithersburg Community Museum can teach you a whole host of fun facts and cool information, as it celebrates the dynamic transportation and history of it’s city.
There are permanent exhibitions for you to enjoy, as well as rotating exhibitions to keep you coming back. The museum is a great source of history so there are educational programs offered in the Freight House.
History Park is snug between the Train Station and the Freight House, and this features really fascinating historical photographs and information of the city over the years, as it has developed into what you know today.
Love trains? Then you will love this! There are rolling exhibits showcasing the beautiful old trains, from the years gone by. Have a close look and see if there is anything you had never noticed about trains before! You might do on the 1918 Buffalo Creek and Gauley Steam Locomotive, or the really cool 1950’s Budd Car.
A great way to spend a day with the family looking into the past of a beautiful Maryland city.
