This is a great find in Green Bay, WI. The museum is not huge but contains huge old train cars with unique histories. You can climb into some of the cars to get the feel of train travel. There is also a brief train ride that travels around the grounds with a narration by the conductor. Made me want to book a train "journey."

We enjoyed seeing the inventory of railway cars. The museum is fine for maybe an hour, especially with children. It just does not compare with so many others, especially considering the entrance fee. I would not make a special trip to see it, but fine if you are in the area. Having said that, it appears they have embarked on a campaign to remake the site and certainly have a lot of enthusiasm. I wish them well and hope they are able to raise the funds for the new design. The people there were very friendly and informative.

Enjoyed being able to look at and climb around several train cars and locomotives. Reminded me of my childhood.

They have Eisenhower train that he used in wwll to travel europe. They have a big boy. The areotrain. Almost every thing they have so you can go in them. It is really interesting. They have a train ride around the park. It along the fox river. There is a viewing tower that is 100 steps to get to top.

I first visited the Museum when it first opened in the 60's. I grew up with the last of the steam engines and rode trains many times. When the museum opened it was great to get to climb all the engines and some of the cars. Eisenhower's engine , big boy and the Texas from The Great Locomotive chase were here along with many more comon engines. I shoved coal in a boiler sat in all the cabs. Now only a few of the engines are open for getting in the cab, you can't shovel coal and much of the equipment is Very run down. The train ride is dis appointing. Rather than in authentic cars of different eras you ride on a flat car that is screened in and if you face out toward the road you have to crane around to see anything. If you have never seen a train I can still say it would be interesting. If you are familiar with engines, rolling stock and want a hands on experience of high quality look elsewhere. I would have given a lower rating but still has some value. In the checked part below I was not sure of the Public transport I think the bus goes past it. Wheelchair accessibility is on the train ride the museum buildings but I don't believe many if any of the cars or engines are.
