Put down those history books, kids, because history is coming to life right in front of your eyes at Hesston Steam Museum!
Hesston Steam Museum is where the whole family can experience real steam locomotives that will take you on a spectacular two and a half mile journey through deep woods, past lakes and farm fields.
in fact, there are three different steam railroads to enjoy, with a number of machines of the industrial age there to enhance those educational experiences!
The whole family can ride the 1/4 scale and 1/8 scale steam railroads, as you meander over bridges and through an enchanting wooded landscape.
The Hesston Steam Museum is filled with other steam powered machinery including a steam-powered saw mill, a railroad steam crane, steam powered electric power plant, steam traction engines and more.
The largest locomotive at the Hesston Steam Museum is a Shay type that once hauled logs out of the mountains in the West. Then you have the medium sized vintage Kiddieland railroad that once provided rides in amusement parks from the 1920s to the 1970s. Imagine all the memories that the locomotive has created!
Last, there is the small railroad that is fun for kids of all ages!
History really does come to life at this family friendly museum, so grab those conductor hats kids, it's time to climb aboard and get ready for a day of FUN!
