Brunswick Heritage Museum

Brunswick Heritage Museum

For over 30 years, the Brunswick Heritage Museum has preserved the history of Brunswick, a beautiful canal town along the C&O Canal Towpath. Stop in to explore the museum’s exhibits which tell the story of a town built by the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad, which, in 1890, began construction of a five-mile rail yard that would reshape Brunswick into a company town with a population of over 5,000! A magnificent 1,700-square foot model railroad depicts the B&O Metropolitan Subdivision beginning at the west end of Brunswick’s rail yard to Union Station in Washington, D.C.
The museum proudly houses the Brunswick Visitors Center for the National Park Service’s Chesapeake & Ohio National Historic Park. The history of the C&O Canal is beautifully depicted in photographs and interactive elements. It’s operated by the nonprofit Brunswick Potomac Foundation. Admission is always free, but donations are always welcome!
