We were driving from twin cities to door county and stopped here to check out the rail road museum . We had very minimal expectations but it was really good .Got to see some old steam / desiel trains and experienced the inside of the few trains. Easily you can spend an hour . We also loved the 3$ train ride around the property . They go very slow around 7 miles per hour and a host explains the history of the museum . Definitely would recommend of you ate in the area
Many amazing historical railroad pieces. The train ride around the grounds takes about 1/2 hour and the docent has tidbits for all ages. Note: avoid the very back of the train; squeaky brakes make it challenging to hear the lecture.
As a long time train lover I was thrilled with the locomotives on display. The quality of the signs and interactive content (e.g. getting to walk through many passenger cars and some locomotives, including the Big Boy) kept the whole family entertained.
What a beautiful gem hidden in plain sight! I always see this on the list of things to do while visiting Green Bay, but I always dismiss it. Just go for it! My toddler, husband, and I loved it. Great learning opportunities but really just a fun experience to explore each train. It was also full of great photo opportunities. My only complaint is the front desk gentleman was not very nice.
Nice place! Unique trains that you can walk through. They have train rides too but we didn't go on one. A fun stop and easy to get to.
