We took our toddler who loves Thomas the Train here on a beautiful summer day to take her on a train ride and see the museum. Don't get me wrong, the trains are neat to see and I loved being able to actually walk through some of them. There are some huge, neat engines. But I was taken aback by... More

This is well planned out museum. The collection of engines represents the railroad industry from the 1930's to today. There is something for the kids to do and of course old retired train guys. Other than football, this is the thing to do while in Green Bay.

I went with my husband and my 2 yrs old daughter. She loves trains and that's why we stopped by to get the ride, buy souvenirs and take a tour. We were expecting a longer ride (at least 10 minutes), but the reality it was around 5 minutes if the guide doesnt talk too much.

My sister and her 2 young sons were visiting from Michigan. I also have a young son- and between our 3 boys, trains are the coolest thing ever. I thought this would be a great day trip, and it was. The boys lit up with excitement when they saw trains, more trains, and they even got to walk on the... More

Awesome place to see railroad history, walk through some very impressive trains and ride a steam engine. Lots of events so check the calendar.

We visited with our 9yo granddaughter and had a blast. If you like steam power this is the place to visit. We spent over 3 hours here and enjoyed every minute of it.

This is truly one of the nation's foremost railroad museums. Not only does the museum offer static exhibits, but a visitor can ride an actual train while the conductor narrates the museum grounds and exhibits. Most of the exhibits are inside, so viewing them is easy in case of bad weather. Unlike most railroad museums, this one is landscaped nicely.... More

We are a thrifty family, so we balked at the lack of a family rate, but the place is enormous, and it was worth the cost. Easily a 4-6 hour activity for any one interested in railroads. The train ride was only so-so because the museum only has limited property, but the train tickets are only 2.00 each, so it... More

This place is great! Where else can you sit in the cab of a Big Boy? Plan on spending 3-4 hours to really see everything.

If you like trains, this is the place to be. Some history, some models and lots of old trains that you can get up close and personal with. Wander in and out of many real trains, no longer in use, and see what it feels like to be sitting in the 'drivers seat'. We also took the train ride they... More
