We drove from Wild Rose to this railroad museum in Green Bay. The Railroad museum was fun, there was a little train ride, lots of great old locomotives and train cars, we talked about returning later in the year when they unveil the D. D. Eisenhower train car he used as a command post during WWII.

I am from St.louis, MO. We have railroad museum there, A lot larger collection but not near as well displayed as this was.

This museum is cool, even if you know nothing about trains! Of course it makes it more interesting if you like trains. You can walk through most of the trains on display, including the Big Boy and an old Zephyr passenger train. The gift shop is filled with many interesting train items. Also, they have hobo signs throughout the museum... More

So many different trains, many of which you get to walk thru. Currently they have Dwight Eisenhower's WW 2 command train, an amazing piece of history. Really enjoyed the old steam engines, the Pullman cars, the mail car and the cabooses! Pay the extra fee to ride in the engine with the very interesting and knowledgable engineer on their short...

My husband is a rail buff. He loved this place. Even I, not a rail buff, liked it. The short train ride was enjoyable. There were some premiere pieces to be seen here. The grounds were well maintained, and all staff members were friendly and helpful.

There is a nice museum there with some engines under an enclosed area. There are many more rolling stock items outside. Many of the displays are open for your inspection. This facility is still in the building stage and will grow with the years.

Allow three hours for a complete a tour of the railroad museum. Visiting hours end at 5:00 pm, and we didn't have enough time arriving at 2:50. We ended up missing the train ride and video so we could continue through with all the exhibits. Regular admission is $10 for adults and $9 for seniors. Add $2 for the train... More

Not very expensive, but you get what you pay for. Museum was not bad but more effort could be put into the displays.

The limited access to the inside of the trains and... More

Have visited this Museum at Christmas time and it was wonderful for kids. Saw Santa and the special events were great. A great opportunity to tour train cars from the past
