Where do I park? Is there Handicap Parking?
The B&O offers free & secure parking at both of their parking lots. Please report to the main parking lot located at 901 W. Pratt St. in Baltimore, MD. Upon your arrival, if this lot is full, parkers will direct you to the secondary lot and museum entrance located at 1100 James St. (Tour Bus Parking), Baltimore, MD (http://baltimore.org/info/motorcoach-parking-information). Please DO NOT DROP OFF members of your party. It is best to park your vehicle(s) with your entire party and enter the museum as a group at one time. Dropping off members of your party at the front gate causes you and your party extra time and frustration. In addition to there being ample handicap parking spots, the B&O Museum and Chuggington event is ADA compliant and handicap accessible.
 
This is our first Chuggington event. What should we expect?
FUN!! Chuggington A Traintastic Adventure brings the show to life as families are immersed into the world of Chuggington. Young Trainees have the opportunity to participate in a variety of activities, complete several challenges, and earn rewards for their participation. Each challenge is scenario-based and represents Chuggington’s main themes and characters – Koko, Brewster, and Wilson.  The challenges allow Trainees to practice important life skills such as teamwork, safety, and leadership as they work hard to become the best Trainee they can be.
