Cool displays of life back then and many trains to walk through and tour. There are trains outdoors too. If you're a fan, you'll dig this.

This is what a train museum should be! If you are short on time, skip the upstairs exhibits and start at the lower level where the actual trains are! Amazing! Next time we are there I hope we'll be able to take the train ride along the lake shore.

Nice collection and displays. In a historic Depot with other museums. Definitely a stop for railfans and history buffs, but interesting to others as well. A great warm up for the train rides that depart from the same location.

What a terrific museum. Lots of different rail cars to explore & most of them you can climb on & check out the interior. There are working model trains to try out. And there are train trips that can be taken up the North Shore. Don't miss it!!

One of the better railway museums you will go to. The train ride, the station, the museum, the interesting and patient volunteers are all to be commended. Even the snack bar on the train ride, the pop, chips and bars at $ 1 each ! These people deserve all the support they can get.

Our 3-year-old son is currently obsessed with trains courtesy of Thomas & Friends, so we thought this would be perfect stop during a weekend getaway...We were wrong. While Informative for adults (there are even several trains/cars you can actually get into), it lacked appeal for young children, and we had to cut the trip short because it was incredibly hot...

This museum houses many historical trains and train "stuff." The first floor has tracks of coaches and engines. The inside walls of the museum around the tracks has displays of historical garments and shops, such as a doctor's office. The 2nd floor has the "Immigrant Waiting Room" and other historical features and documents relating to immigrants to the US and... More

Bill was hoping for more out-of-state trains, but I found the museum fascinating. I wish I could have spent more time there.

Barbara and I were staying at the Edgewater Hotel and Waterpark in Duluth MN. We asked them of what local attractions that there are for young teenagers, our two grandkids, they mention that there was a railroad museum close by and that you could take a train ride up along the North Shore line. We asked our grandkids and they... More
