Very nice museum for railroad enthusiasts!
Sep 2021
My Husband and I spent six hours here over the Labor Day weekend. We had been here before with our children when they were young but this was the first time he could spend as much time as he wanted and see everything! We took the train ride and learned a little more about the area and about Hobos. We also watched the video in the cinema about the Big Boy engine. Masks must be worn. It rained a little while we were there, but most of the exhibits are under cover so it does not matter.

Good stop for as long as you want to stay
Jul 2021
We enjoyed this stop on our trip. Enjoyed walking through the cars, reading about the history of railroads in the US. The movie was good - just the right length.

Administration is rude.
Jul 2021 • Family
The administration was absolutely snobbish and rude. My family (husband, 4 children, and parents in their 70's) were standing inside the doorway (ticket counter was 20' away) waiting for my dad to retrieve his has mask out of the car. My kids were horsing around with their masks on their face. Administration walks up to one of my kids (not me or my husband) and tells them they have to keep their masks over their nose. She couldn't stop there. She continued with "and it has to stay there even when I leave". The lady at the ticket counter did not even have her mask over her nose. I can follow a policy, but I will NOT pay for your attitude.

Fun place to stop!
Jun 2021 • Family
This place was outstanding! Their is so much history in one place. The “BIG BOY” steam train was my favorite. It was really lived up to its name. This museum also contains the Eisenhower train and a ton of other old trains and wooden box cars. The gift shop was not over priced luckily.

Ride the Rails in Green Bay
Jun 2021 • Couples
Facilities are first class. Some unusual engines and cars including D. Eisenhower’s command train from WWII, General Motors engine and cars from the 1950’s and the UP Big Boy 4017. Train excursion last 30 or so minutes, circular around the grounds. For only $2.00 on our senior tickets total price was $11.00. If you are in Green Bay WI area well worth the visit.

Fun and informative 2.5 hours!
Jun 2021
Went with an 8 and 10 year old. Wasn't sure how the kids would take to it but they really enjoyed it! They had a blast checking out all the trains (better bet we explored every single one :-P) and they especially loved the ones in the big indoor building. We also did the train ride which was nice. We really appreciated the ticket person who explained the best route to take through the place. All said, 2.5 hours (including train ride, walking through everything, and the movie) of solid fun and informative learning for the kids.

All aboard the covid express!
Apr 2021 • Family
First, the museum is cute and nice. The trains are gorgeous and my three year old enjoyed the exhibits. Here’s the thing - avoid the train ride. We were told us was covid-safe. It’s not. They close you in there with no open windows and no ventilation. The train goes super slowly. Tons of people half wearing their masks and kids with no masks. They told us they only fill it to half capacity but then told everyone to sit on the same side! How does that work? The conductor is very nice but he goes around volunteering to take pictures of people during the ride and tells them they have to remove their masks for the pictures. He’s sort of jokey about it but everyone did. I’m vaccinated so I wasn’t worried about myself but my child isn’t and now I’m super afraid he could have been infected. Hugely regret going.

A Wonderful Wedding Venue
Sep 2020
This museum is definitely a must for any train enthusiast. There are many exhibits both inside and outside. Free train rides are also available. We were there for a wedding. What a unique venue for that ceremony!

This is a train museum
Sep 2020
This is really a train museum; not a railroad museum. I expected to learn about how the railroads were built in the US, maps of the system and how it changed over time. There was NOT one map of the railroads. It was all about trains. The trains are very cool . . .but it is not what we were interested in.

To expensive
Sep 2020 • Family
They want way too much money for a mostly outdoor museum with train cars that cannot be explored and a train ride that happens to infrequently in otherwise too expensive to ride.
