My family loved this place. Very interactive and fun! Lots of space for the kiddos the run and explore. We went on a Saturday morning and it was dead so we basically had the run of the place. We can't wait to go back in summer as they have so much outside. Reasonably priced gift shop as well!

Great for a rainy day. I took my grandsons that are 3 and they loved it. One grandson loves trains and sits for hours watching them on his moms phone. So you can imagine this spot was a hit. He got to ride the train and go in some older styles. I think there were 4 in the back building... More

My son, 7 is a huge lover of all things trains. Went here with the family. Neat film (air conditioned room - we were there in July - hot outside!), theater had seating. Lots of model trains and a whole shed of trains to tour outside. Watch out for the pigeons though, I got my head pooped on! Luckily it... More

We stopped here before going to lambeau and we're really happy that we did. This is well worth the stop, lots of information and the best part is you can climb all over most of the trains. The museum is not really big, but we were able to spend 2 hours quickly going through it, I wish we had more... More

Any grandparent will find this a wonderful place to share the history of trains. The exhibits are first class with a great staff. Another great asset for Green Bay.

My husband and and I both enjoy going to different types of museums. He particularly used to love trains growing up and I have fond memories of train rides with grandparents. We thought taking the short train trip at the National Railway Museum would be fun and it really was. But we were extremely surprised and pleased that inside the... More

If you enjoy trains, it's a great place to visit. But if you have children in strollers, the trains outside can be difficult to visit. You must push it thru gravel and over a train track, with quite a height to it. Small grassy area with a pick nick table to bring a lunch. Small gift shop also.

My husband is more interested in vintage trains, but I found this museum to be interesting and informative. Each train had a historic definition to go along with it that made it interesting. You could also enter many of the cars to get the feeling of what it was like to be in one.
