The Bay State Model Railroad Museum
About the BSMRM:
The Museum is operated by a non-profit, private club. We do not have regular visiting hours, but you are free to stop by most Wednesday evenings when members are usually operating our various layouts. Please make a reservation for a visit using the form below. We do not offer formal tours, host birthday or other parties. We have Open Houses on the weekend before Thanksgiving and the first full weekend of March. These are the best times to visit as we will have all the layouts in top shape and running lots of trains for your enjoyment.
Thank you for attending our 2023 Holiday Open House!
We had the largest attendance we have ever had for an Open House.
Did you see Thomas, Clarabel and Annie on the N Scale layout?
Our next Open House will be March 2nd and 3rd, 2024.
See you there!
If you would like to be reminded about our Open Houses and other events we may have, please fill out the Subscribe form at the bottom of this page.
Request a reservation for a Wednesday Night in person visit!
The Bay State Model Railroad Museum is open, on a limited basis, on select Wednesday nights from 7-9PM for small visitor groups. Please understand that these visits are not the same as our normal Open Houses; we will not necessarily be running trains and members may be busy working on scenery, doing track work, etc.
Please try to have no more than three children per adult and be prepared to supervise your children (no touching of trains or layouts).
We are sorry, but our facility is on the second floor, and we are not handicapped accessible.
Given the current guidance from the state and Boston, we will not require visitors to wear masks but you are certainly welcome to do so.
Please do not come to your reservation if you or anyone in your party is feeling ill or has had recent exposure to someone with the flu or Covid-19
There is no charge, but donations are appreciated.
