What an awesome museum! I spent a very enjoyable hour and a half here on my own, just exploring. They have different kinds of exhibits, which I liked—from photos and signs to trains you can enter and look through, every part of the museum is...More

This museum is a hidden gem. Nobody goes to GB to go here but they should. Heck it has been awhile since I've been here but I remember having a ball.

It is the true national railroad museum. Plenty of trains to look at. A movie theater with a short flick about Big Boy! You can also take a 2 lap train ride and learn some hobo jargon.

This deceptively modest museum packs a Big Boy punch. The highlights for me were they well restored engines in the "train barn." One was the Big Boy, they largest steam engine ever produced. Over a million pounds. Like seeing the Apollo rocket of the steam...More

Packer Game Day tips (78 Replies)
There's a lot of info scattered throughout the forum about things to do, places to see, how to get tickets etc. (Some answers to that are: Lambeau, Bay Beach, The National Railroad Museum; consider Door County, spend two days at least to see a game, Green Bay and the Packer sites; Stub-Hub or Ticket Master or find a nice season ticket holder). But there's not as much about what to expect regarding the game itself. FOOD: Recently someone was asking about tailgating, but coming on a bus to a...More
