IRM is open weekends only, advance tickets required

Day Out With Thomas™

The health and well-being of our guests, volunteers, employees and partners continues to be our first priority. After careful consideration, the Illinois Railway Museum has decided that it will not be possible to hold Day Out With Thomas events in 2020. The museum is continuing to monitor Illinois state guidance as it affects our ability to welcome visitors back to our site, on even a restricted scale. However, it is now clear that we could not realistically hope to safely host the large numbers of visitors attracted by Thomas to the site within the next couple of months.
If you already hold tickets for the event, no action is necessary. Ticketweb will begin issuing refunds to the card that was used to buy the tickets within the next week.
It is a great sadness to us that this will be the first time in many years that we have not been able to host this event and we hope that you will be able to join us for Day Out With Thomas events in 2021. Thank you for your understanding during these uncertain times.
The inability to open to our visitors is obviously a substantial cost to the Illinois Railway Museum and we would be most grateful if you feel able to make a donation in support of our continued operations at: https://www.irm.org/donation/general-fund
