Where are we going today?

The BRRM can be seen as two museums in one. On the second floor, the Museu's exhibits tell the history of Brunswick and the people who have lived here. Life-sized recreations of late Victorian rooms are the centerpiece of these exhibits. On the Museum's third floor is a massive HO Scale model railroad which accurately depicts the Baltimore & Ohio's Metropolitan Subdivision from the west end of Brunswick's railyard eastward to Union Station in Washington D.C., through many of the towns and cities along the line, shown as they looked during the 1960s!
