Experience the Twin Cities' only interactive railroad facility that's been in continuous operation for over 100 years. Today, it houses a fully interactive train museum featuring restored railcars, locomotives, operating signals, model trains and children's play area. Watch the active restoration process of full size rail equipment including steam and diesel engines and vintage passenger cars or wave at the freight trains rolling by outside the windows. Travel through history with in-depth exhibits featuring local and regional railway history. Experience a genuine operating roundhouse turntable, one of the last of its kind in the country.
