Virtual Rails & Ales
Tickets: $30.  Each ticket includes two souvenir glasses, six different beers, and a one-hour online beer tasting using ZOOM with education director Bob Lettenberger and his guests. Your exclusive Rails & Ales kit can be picked up at the Museum Store starting a week prior to your event. To pick up your kit, you must be at least 21 years old and show a valid ID.

VIP Event
Tickets: $60. It’s an evening of beer sampling at the National Railroad Museum. Enjoy a variety of soups along with beer samples from breweries across the U.S. The beer samples provided will be exclusive to the Premium Class event and will not be served during the online events. The beer samples are presented in a one-and-done fashion. We will present at least one-can each of 240 different beers from across the spectrum of brewing styles. As many three-ounce samples as possible are poured from a can; and when it’s gone, it’s gone. Save $5.00 if you’ve attended one of the Virtual sessions. (Please note: all patrons attending the Premium Class in-person event are required to wear a facemask. The mask must cover your nose and mouth and be worn anytime you are not actually consuming food or beverage. Anyone who does not comply with this rule will be asked to leave the Museum and no refund will be offered.)
