The Museum is open Sundays in April.

Pumpkin Train event cancelled for 2020

The Illinois Railway Museum has made the decision to cancel its annual Pumpkin Train event for 2020. Given the social distancing and other health safety measures currently in place, the museum feels that it would not be able to safely offer a full “pumpkin patch” experience as it has done in the past. The museum and its volunteers look forward to bringing this event back next year.

IRM is open on weekends through the end of October for normal train operations. Social distancing and mask requirements are in place. A full list of safety measures can be found here. Tickets must be purchased in advance and attendance limits are in place, so visitors are encouraged to reserve their tickets early. Tickets are available at tickets.irm.org.
