Where are we going today?
Come spend an afternoon at the Oklahoma Railway Museum!
After all, if you could do anything on your family day out in Oklahoma, it makes sense to choo choo choose this fun locomotive attraction!
Have you ever been for a ride in a real passenger train? Or perhaps been on those iconic red caboose? If you have ever wanted to ride an authentic dining car, you can do all of those things at the Oklahoma Railway Museum!
It's a day out full of learning, adventure, rides, and fun. If you like history, you can even ride a Pullman car that once ferried earlier generations across the country!
Then, there is the actual museum part of the day. There are historic and vintage freight cars, passenger cars, and even a real steam engine on display!
The trains operate first and third Saturdays from April to August.
Keep an eye out for those fun events across the year too - sometimes you might just be able to hang out with some pretty famous faces, such as Thomas The Tank Engine!
So grab those conductor hats, kids, because we're off for an adventure that is all things locomotives - what a great way to ride through that day out together!
How much does it cost?
- Adults$12 train rides. Museum is free.

As a photographer who loves old tech it was a blast to see the amazing collection at the Oklahoma Railway Museum. The staff who helped me was first class and everyone in our group had a good time. I got some incredible photos too!

The people working there were rude. My boys and I were looking at railcars from the back and some guy came over and rudly told use we can't go there. Put up a sign or something. And I actually heard a lady yell at a kid for being on the rails while he was walking to take a picture with Thomas. And not because the train was moving or he was in danger. He was just trying to to get in front of the camera for his picture with Thomas and stepped of the black rubber mat. And to top it all off the train goes right into a very bad area of town along...Read More

This is a great place, smaller museum but a train ride if you get there on the days on the website. Nice layout. Keep in mind some of the volunteers are mechanics or railroad guys, and some are docents. But everyone is interesting to talk with if you give them a chance! Check it out, you'll like it!

Merry Christmas??? I paid over $65 for tickets on the Christmas train at this place. Nice people except the music was supposed to be Christmas music and the guy sang about a rusty chevrolet?? Worst song I have ever heard and I asked about it the girl just giggled thought funny? Never ever would go back to hear that music . Horrible song and terrible voice RUINED THE WHOLE EXPERIENCE for my girls....

Intersting. Friendly people let us wander all through everything without too many restrictions. Lots of things going on. Volunteers we spoke with were friendly and knowledgeable. We did not have to listen to a 'canned' presentation, rather had a nice conversation with several members about cars and equipment. We will be back for the Christmas Train.
