It has always been a prime desire of the Museum and its membership to display our historic collections to the public-at-large. Throughout IRM's existence, there has been a concerted outreach to the general public to gain recognition, acceptance and support.
As a relatively new organization, some of the amenities normally expected of the fully funded major museums may not as yet exist here at Union. Rest assured that our goal is to make this presentation as professional as possible. With time, member "sweat-equity" and public participation substituting for full funding, our goal will be reached, as the attaining of our current recognized status will attest.
Having invested almost forty years to establish our presence and recreate the railroad environment, the Illinois Railway Museum is remaining true to its goals and planning for the future!
