Wide assortment of old carriages and period piece costumes. We enjoyed the funeral carriages. If you enjoy carriages and this is your interest it is worth the time and effort to seek this place out.

Checked this out while on the Western Maryland railroad ride. Not really into carriages, but was interesting to see the different types and construction. A good way to kill some time if not interested in walking up the hill to Frostburg.

The place is free so definitely drop by especially if you are there on a train from Cumberland. The area is charming with a very small town atmosphere. Even if you have no interest in the history of carriages, you might be won over.

This small museum has a collection of carriages from the time when they were the best method of transportation. Well worth a visit; if you take the Western Maryland Scenic Train, their ticket will get you in, but, in fairness, you should put something in...More

A step back in time. The carriages are fascinating, especially the hearse. Ornate a plain. Quite a bariety and worth a peek on your layover in Frostburg. They do need to learn to be a little more cordial.
