Located in Green Bay, WI, the National Railroad Museum gives you the opportunity to explore the industry that has carried us from coast to coast for nearly two centuries. The Museum is home to thousands of artifacts and over 60 pieces of rolling stock, including diesel, steam, and electric locomotives, plus passenger and freight equipment. Among these are pieces that influenced U.S. railroading and helped build our nation.
When visiting the Museum, a must-see is one of the largest steam locomotive ever operated, the Union Pacific No. 4017 Big Boy. Other significant pieces include the British Railway No. 60008 Dwight D. Eisenhower, a steam locomotive belonging to a class that holds the world speed record for steam locomotives; two of General Eisenhower's World War II command coaches; General Motors' experimental Aerotrain; the streamlined Pennsylvania Railroad No. 4890, a GG-1 electric locomotive; and the Frederick Bauer Drumhead Collection, the largest, single collection of railroad drumheads known to exist in the United States. The Museum also presents a number of exhibits beyond the displayed rolling stock. Explore the world of the iconic passenger car attendant in our exhibit Pullman Porters: From Service to Civil Rights.
A train ride is offered daily from May through September. The train is powered by a vintage diesel locomotive and will feature a variety of coaches. Among these is the very popular open-air car, which allows patrons a up-close, unrestricted look at the Museum grounds.
The Museum also hosts a variety of special events for all ages. For more information please visit the Museum's website at www.nationalrrmuseum.org. Open Monday-Saturday 9 a.m. '" 5 p.m.; Sunday 11 a.m. 5 p.m.
