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. We do not offer formal tours, or host birthday or other parties. The first full weekends of December and March are the best time to visit as we will have all the layouts in top shape and running lots of trains for your enjoyment.
Request a reservation for an in person visit!
In lieu of our normal Open Houses, the Bay State Model Railroad Museum will be 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.
All visitors must have up-to-date Covid-19 vaccinations. No exceptions; so sorry no children under 5 since they currently cannot be vaccinated.
Please try to have no more than three children per adult and be prepared to supervise your children (no touching of trains or layouts).
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.
Bring digital or paper copies of your vaccination status for your visit.
Our door will be locked. Unless you are told otherwise, please ring the door bell or call (617) 327-4341 and someone will come greet you and ask for your vaccination documents (on paper or on your phone).
