More than just trains.

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.

The Museum's educational programs for students reinforce school curriculum including arts and history as well as science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields of study. The railroad theme engages students, allowing them to discover learning in a way that is fun and interactive. The Museum also offers a variety of educational opportunities for adults.

The impact of the Museum is significant, with an annual attendance of 75,000. Two thirds of our members are families. On average, 5,600 patrons particiapte in educational programs per year. We invite you to come and explore the National Railroad Museum!
