A Day Out With Thomas is coming to the B&O Railroad Museum in Baltimore, Maryland, and while it is an expensive outing, this penny-pinching mom thinks it is well worth every penny!
We first heard about A Day Out With Thomas last year, at the height of our Thomas obsession. The stars aligned – hubby was home, we loved Thomas and I had a special coupon code. I hesitated for half a second only because it isn’t cheap, but I knew this would be a special family day experience. We had never been to the museum there, however I had heard that it was a pretty cool place to visit for train loving people. There are several vintage trains to venture into, a hands on station for the kids, lego and train building stations and docents. As part of the special “TDO” events there were pictures with Sir Topham Hat and story times. These were both organized extremely well, with fast moving lines and pleasant workers. We weren’t forced through the lines either. The kids got to hug him, high-five him and we took our own pictures! That was a pleasant surprise.
The fun didn’t stop there. Once you headed outside there was a whole world of fun waiting for you! There were several rides for the kids (that usually cost money but were included in the special admission). They had bounce houses set up as well as musical entertainment. Outside they had food vendors that were fairly reasonable and places set up to eat.
The ride on Thomas was an in and out type deal, and actually the policeman on their motorbikes were quite the entertainment. The kids loved them!!
There was plenty of staff, lots of security and the organization was fabulous!
If you are looking for a very special experience in your hometown you can’t find anything better than this. It was a wonderful time and I would absolutely, four star, recommend this event to you. Grab your tickets soon!
