This began as a sort of hobby for the city of Duluth and has grown over the years to a worthwhile visit. It out-grew its old location and has settled in nicely in its new "digs." Not a lot of equipment and rolling stock to view but what is there is worth the visit. the admission price is reasonable and,... More

An excellent attraction, especially for educating children about the history of railway travel. There is something for young and old, and children will especially enjoy the short 'train ride'. Since much of the museum is outdoors, it is not a trip for a cold, or rainy day. There is plenty to see and do inside, but many of the exhibits... More

This is a great place to take anyone interested in trains, mechanics or history. My train-obsessed four year old had to be carried out after 4 hours of looking at trains, buses and other vehicles. My 9yo daughter and her friend had a blast as well. The admission is very reasonable and there are lots of train engines and cars... More

Took the family here and there were so many trains to see. The outside trains didn't have ac but its understandable. If you want to see every train outside go early in the morning or on a cool day. Kids loved the train ride! They could use a little landscaping to make the ride more interesting but the museum portion... More

Lots of great old trains. We were pressed for time so we didnt get to see everything. They have some really great history on display.

My 3 and 8 year old sons had a great time at the SE Railway Museum. They have lots of trains and engines to explore and offer lots of artifacts and railroad memorabilia. You can ride on an open rail car and a train ride around park. A must for any rail fan!

This is a beginning of what will become a great collection of railroad memorabilia. To an adult, it shows struggle, but to a child, it is a fun place where a short ride on the big rails can be enjoyed. Many of the children have never been on a train and are awestruck with the size and movement of the... More

Obviously, this attraction is in dire need of money (lots of money!) and the curatorship to make it an impact collection of exhibits. We (two adults) visited on a Saturday morning and we seemed to be the only people without kids. So, I believe this venue is more about kids parties and train rides than it is about railway lore...

My husband is intrigued with trains. His dad and some of his friends used to run the train displays up at Roberson's in Binghamton, NY. So when we passed by the site one time, we decided to stop and explore the exhibits and we were glad we did. We had an interesting day and were glad it was open that... More

To any mom who is planning a trip to the Southeastern Train Museum. I went there this morning with my MOPS group we were having a great time going in all the trains and looking around. The kids got on an Engine to look around. We moms decided we would set on a bench next to the train and watch... More
