I was there 15 years ago and came back with my husband. The museum has a terrific collection of rolling stock, including several that you can walk through, and we spent a few hours taking photos — nice on a weekday morning when there were few people around. The Eisenhower and the Big Boy are gems, but we were fascinated... More

Very good train museum. My husband enjoyed looking at the Big Boy and Aero train, something we had never seen before. Many exhibits were open to view inside and photograph. Outside also had exhibits to view.

This is a great railroad museum with several historic old trains and locomotives. Of particular interest are the giant "Big Boy" 16 drive wheel engine and the engine that pulled Dwight Eisenhower's train while he served as Supreme Commander during WWII.

I was staying at a nearby hotel and walked down the street to this museum to check it out. Wow, was I impressed! I had no idea this gem was even in Green Bay, but I really enjoyed the history and learning all about early U.S. rail travel. Lots of steam engines, which I especially love. And unlike a lot...

Not only is there a great selection of trains from engin to caboose that you can get up on and into. You also can take a short ride that brings back days gone by

I went here when I was a kid about 20 years ago. Didn't remember much, but it sure was fun now - we liked it so much that we got a family membership! They have a fun building where kids can play in/on train models, learn about trains, color, and play with wooden train sets. Our 2.5 year old didn't... More

We arrived at 10:00 A.M. on the first Friday in September, and missed the first train ride; scheduled the second one at noon. It was a warm day, and the enclosed car does not have air conditioning, so we took a seat in the screened in open car. The ride is twice around the grounds, and a guide explains the... More

We stopped by on our way from Madison to Sault Ste Marie. Great spot to get out of the car for a couple hours. Enjoyed the ride on the train, twice around the entire campus. Then, the kids loved playing on the wooden train that the eagle scouts had made. Finally, if you go inside what looks like an old... More

There are trains here that you won't see elsewhere. Many real trains that you can walk inside of and see how they were back in the day. You can sit in the cab of the engines, and walk through the passenger compartments, cabooses, and dining cars. On display is the British A4 train engine used by General Dwight David Eisenhower...
