I can only speak of the experience we had for the Polar Express and it was incredible! The kids that we had with us (9, 6, and 3) all loved it and had a great time! It all starts out with a welcome and hot chocolate and while you're enjoying your hot chocolate, you get to listen to a reading... More

Drove two hours from milwaukee to see this train wreck. I'm sure it's a great train museum, but didn't get to see much in the 15 minutes between the time the doors were opened and the show began. The reading was fine, but the train ride to the North Pole was a joke. Who knew the only thing between here... More

This museum in Green Bay is a treasure trove of railway memorabilia and also has a large shop selling lots of authentic rail goodies. We've visited twice with our grandkids and have enjoyed both times. You can climb inside several of the carriages and the kids are allowed to touch most of the exhibits. The museum is well laid out... More

Very well designed, very informative, and very historic. They have numerous railroad cars that are in the process of being restored that are interesting to see.

Okay, who doesn't love a good train museum. We have had the opportunity to visit many railroads, especially in Pennsylvania and the Henry Ford in Michigan. We had this on the Green Bay list (after Lambeau, of course!). Our visit was early afternoon and on a Monday which resulted in very few others being on site. This allowed us the... More

The National Railroad Museum is reasonably priced and they have amazing examples of historical trains. Great place for kids and adults and a nice tower with a lovely view of Lambeau!!!

I was a little disappointed when my husband wanted to go here because I am not a fan of trains but it was a great experience. It was 11.00/pp to get in and the beginning of the museum was a little boring but once you got to the trains it was very interesting. You are able to walk through most... More

I love trains. If you have ever wondered how big the largest locomotive ever made looks like, then you need a trip to this museum. Massive wouldn't even be accurate. Sitting in the engineers seat is like sitting inside a fortress. Plan two hours to wander through the outside exhibits. The Eisenhower locomotive is so stately. Elegant. The little loop... More

I was skeptical of spending time from our vacation here but I am glad we did! If you are interested in history or trains it is worth checking out. The ticket price was reasonable and considering we were there for about 3 hours, well worth the money. I thought the graffiti display was oddly put together, warning of the dangers... More
