You can also see vintage cars, trucks, buses, and fire engines. I loved walking through the pullman and the 4 different trains/cars to see how the well-to-do... More

We took a picnic lunch since they do not sell food other than a few snacks. We were there for 3.5 hours of pure enjoyment. Their website does not do the... More

This museum is unique in that it has many different type of train cars renovated so that you can actually go inside them! Very neat feature. The train ride itself was short, but interesting... More

Southeastern Railway Museum is a place to go to look at anything train related. They have all different types of train from sleeper cars to old mail vehicles. Definitely worth a trip especially if you have children.

We have been coming here for the last 13 years and it is a family favorite. My son loves the friendly staff and riding the train. They have cool model train shows often too!

Right in our own backyard. Duluthians, a must visit for you. Anyone else interested in railroading throughout the years will find the exhibits super interesting. From the BIG engines to the models to the 3-rail Lyonell trains. Expect to spend several hours on the grounds so that you can investigate all the nooks and crannies of the facility. In the... More

Dropped by one afternoon, and was pleasantly surprised at all the great old trains....engines, Pullman cars, and others. Interesting displays of various rail items...inside and out. 2 bulidings with assorted rolling stock outside. $10 entrance fee for adults. If you are a train enthusiast, this place is a must.
