Group Tours

Explore the history and technology of America's railroads!

Your Museum exploration can be either guided or self-paced. Each program will allow you to experience the Museum’s collection and exhibits in an up-close, personal manner.

Guided Tours require a minimum of two hours.

Your guide will discuss the highlights of the collection including: the General Motors Aerotrain, General Eisenhower’s WWII command train, the Union Pacific Big Boy, the Pennsylvania Railroad GG-1 electric locomotive, the Pullman porters, and the Wisconsin 40&8 boxcar.

For a typical adult tour, your time at the Museum would be:

  • 25-minute train ride (available May–September)
  • 25-minute theater presentation

You may wish to allot additional time to explore exhibits not included in the tour or to visit the Museum Store.

Hobo Lunches – Dine like a real rail rider! The Museum can provide your group with a hobo (box) lunch as part of your visit. Please ask for menu and pricing information when you make your tour reservation.
