The museum is only open for the Happy Holiday Railway event

Museum Showcase Weekend

This is your opportunity to see and ride some of the less frequently run equipment at IRM as we honor the volunteers who make the museum work. Great photo opportunities!

Attractions planned during Showcase Weekend include operation of the Nebraska Zephyr, the museum’s famous 1930s streamliner; historic electric cars including the museum’s oldest operating piece of equipment, 1898-built elevated car 24; caboose train both days pulled by Shay 5; and trolley buses on Saturday. Memberships good through 2020 will go on sale on the 14th and there will be a dinner open to museum members on Saturday evening. Memberships and member dinner tickets may be purchased at the museum office during the day.
