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

Not huge, but nice collection and interesting displays. Well worth the time, especially for railfans. Train ride is short, a couple trips around approx. a mile of track, but neat. I got to do the cab ride with the engineer, which was cool.

In fairness to this museum, I must say that we have previously been to the Indiana Transportation Museum in Noblesville which has a so much better train ride. The train ride here is pretty pitiful. However, the museum exhibits of old trains are very good -- especially the Eisenhower train. Lots of history here and certainly a great place for... More

We enjoyed this more than we thought we would. Allow at least 2 hours. Exploring the inside of the various trains on display was a very interesting travel back in time. We enjoyed the Pullman sleeper car. The Big Boy was huge! All those control knobs! In the outside hanger the postal car was something we had never seen before... More

The day was ideal for a repete visit to the museum. The Eisenhower looked so grand after its loan to England. Some of the locomotives I haven't seen at other locations. Everything is very well displayed. It is a must see for railroad buffs.
