Welcome to the National Railroad Museum! Our mission is to educate the public through programs, exhibits and preservation projects about the ongoing impact of railroads on our lives. The Museum maintains a noteworthy collection of railroad objects, photographs, manuscripts and rolling stock, and presents interactive exhibits and innovative programs for learners of all ages and abilties.
