What is there to do?

Choo choo - all aboard - we are off to the National Railroad Museum in Green Bay and that can only mean on thing: TRAINS!

Who doesn't love trains, and that's just as well because there are a host of exhibits and displays at this popular museum that will tell you ALL about the locomotive history, AND you might just see some real life locomotives in person!

Every exhibit within the National Railroad Museum brings the life the historic past of the railroad industry, telling the story on how the railroad brought wealth and modernity to millions of Americans.

Kids can learn all about the history of the rail and how it connects the nation to the political, cultural and economic influences that built the nation to what it is today.

You can learn about the Pullman Porters and those men that works the rail lines for nearly 100 years, and how the drumhead was a way for people to choose what train to jump on!

Of course, what would a visit to a railroad museum be without a ride on an ACTUAL train? Train rides run on select days from May to October, and these give you an opportunity to take a 25-minute tour of the museum on their vintage, full-size railroad equipment.

During your fun train experience, the conductor will talk about railroad safety and discuss the hobo culture - all the time you are being pulled by a diesel locomotive!d

No need to reserve, just grab your museum admission then head to the meeting point when the scheduled departure is close!

All aboard - we are departing the station and headed for the National Railroad Museum!
