The museum is closed for the winter, reopening in April.

Scout Day

Have a one track mind Saturday the 12th of May, 2018 as we ride the trains of yesteryear while learning about rail safety and the trains of the past and present. Activities will be available for Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, and Cub Scouts as well as all youth groups.
Boy Scouts will be able to work on the Railroading Merit Badge!

There will be guided tours for all age groups. Boy Scouts going for the railroading merit badge will have a special tour dedicated to helping them learn those specific requirements.

For public hours, admission prices, and scheduled operating equipment click here. (Scouts in uniform admitted for $1 off the normal price.)

For Scout Day requirements click here (PDF file). Scouts will need their Blue Card when meeting with the merit badge counselor.
