Bowie Train Station Museum

Located in historic Old Bowie, the station was relocated from its original site across the railroad tracks and restored in the 1990’s. The Baltimore and Potomac Railroad Company built the first station in 1872 at the junction of rail lines into Washington, D.C. and Southern Maryland. The lines were later integrated into the Pennsylvania Railroad Company system. The Town of Bowie (originally Huntington City) grew up around the train station. The existing museum buildings were constructed in the early 1900’s, but closed in 1989. The Railroad Museum is supported by the City of Bowie and the Huntington Heritage Society.

The Bowie Railroad Tower is the home of the National Railroad Historical Society's Martin O'Rourke Railroad Research Library.

The Station Museum is open to the public Tuesday - Sunday, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and for groups of 10 or more by appointment. The Station is accessible for people with disabilities and is free of charge. For additional information, or to schedule a group tour, call 301-809-3089.
