On Presidents’ Day, February 16, 2003, amid a record-breaking snowfall, one half of the Museum’s massive roof collapsed. The collapse occurred as a result of the weight of drifting snow on the western side of the building. Eyewitness accounts depict the drifts nearly six feet in depth. The first alarm was received at approximately 11:40 PM on February 16th. Museum officials responded to find two sections of the 22-sectioned roof collapsed.

You'll be a really "cool" parent if you book the Baltimore Streetcar Museum for your child's next birthday, Bar/Bat Mitzvah or graduation party. When you book the Museum, you will have use of our Visitor's Center facilities. Our auditorium features our own "Trolley Theatre" in which children can watch a video about streetcars or perhaps you'd like to bring your own along to show. Add you own ice cream, cake, munchies and gifts, and you'll be the talk of your child's friends and parents.
