Know Before You Go: Masks are currently recommended inside Museum buildings and required on-board train rides. We recommend purchase of admission and train ride tickets in advance, as our overall Museum and Train Ride capacities have been reduced for the time being. Although regular Museum Admission and Train Rides are free for Museum Members, we suggest advance reservations regardless.

Story Time and Craft is also available online! Check out our awesome playlist of train themed children’s stories on our YouTube channel by clicking here! A new story is added the third Wednesday each month!
