Our visit was over a year ago, but we remember it well. There is much to see, both indoor and outside. Tons of rolling stock and many locomotive, both steam and diesel. Also many other transportation artifacts as well, including many dioramas and a cool model railroad. The Holy Grail, though, the Union Pacific Big Boy 4-8-8-4 displayed indoors. It's... More

To be able to climb on real trains and engines under cover should not be missed. Wonderful information to learn about the history of railroad and its contribution to our country's growth. Excellent way to realize why railroad is still wonderful way to travel and should be upgraded for 21st centruy

We really enjoyed our visit here. Took our son and we all enjoyed seeing all of trains on the property. cool that we could actually go inside of some and get the feel of what it was like for the people that actually traveled on them.

Visited when in town a few days this autumn. Spent most of a Saturday here. The trainride around the grounds is kind of cheesy, but they do have a number of locomotives that are pretty cool to discover in the shed. One of the better train museums out there, but I don't think it's better than Museum of Transport in... More

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
