Explore America's Railroad Heritage.

The National Railroad Museum collects, preserves, exhibits and interprets artifacts related to the American rail experience. Our collection contains thousands of objects ranging from personal gear to some of the world's rarest rolling stock. We have 30,000 sq. ft. of facilities on 33 acres along the scenic Fox River. Our collection serves as a stunning visual reminder of America's past, and the role that rail played in forging our nation.
