“Enjoyable little railroad museum is free”
Reviewed October 20, 2008

The Minot Railroad Museum concentrates on displays of regional railroading that helped develop Minot. It has three display rooms full of memorabilia; a basement features a model railroad layout. Entry is free, but contributions are accepted. June through August, the museum operates a 2/5 scale Great Northern locomotive that pulls passenger cars through Roosevelt Park. We met about eight railroad enthusiasts in railroad garb with railroad logos on their shirts and caps. They were all very friendly, they asked where we were from, and they encouraged us to ask about the displays. One gave us tips about other local attractions and told us the rodeo was in town.
