My husband and and I both enjoy going to different types of museums. He particularly used to love trains growing up and I have fond memories of train rides with grandparents. We thought taking the short train trip at the National Railway Museum would be fun and it really was. But we were extremely surprised and pleased that inside the... More

If you enjoy trains, it's a great place to visit. But if you have children in strollers, the trains outside can be difficult to visit. You must push it thru gravel and over a train track, with quite a height to it. Small grassy area with a pick nick table to bring a lunch. Small gift shop also.

My husband is more interested in vintage trains, but I found this museum to be interesting and informative. Each train had a historic definition to go along with it that made it interesting. You could also enter many of the cars to get the feeling of what it was like to be in one.

This is a nice 2-3 hour excursion while visiting the Green Bay area; nice collection of train memorabilia, full sized cars and locomotives. Something other than sports in Packer town that is worth the time!

This self-guided museum is wonderfully kept up. All trains and equipment on display is very nicely and clearly displayed and information signs are clear and to the point. We are a family of two adults and a 1.5 year old. We scooted through the museum pretty quick but was still able to see the major points of interest in the... More

For anyone who likes railroads, this site is well worth visiting. It has a nice collection of old engines (some with historical significance) and cars; a visitor can walk into some of them for an even better appreciation of their size and quality. A train ride is offered that provides scenic views and, of course, the experience of the ride.... More

This place is pretty cool, from The Big Boy (which is HUUUGGGEE!) to the Eisenhower (armored trains rock) this place has a few of the most historic trains in the nation. I enjoyed the fact you could actually enter some of the trains and walk through some of the carriage cars. It's worth the price of admission for sure. Also,... More

This is a must stop for rail road history appreciation! Visit the well done model exhibits. Enjoy the full size trains including one of the largest trains ever built. Climb aboard, sit in the engineers seat, look out the window and imagine rolling down the track.. Take a ride around the property on a vintage train.
