National Railroad Museum

Description

With more than 70 locomotives and railroad cars, this is one of the largest rail museums in the U.S. Exhibits include a 600-ton Union Pacific Big Boy, a British-made A4 Class locomotive named in honor of Dwight D. Eisenhower, an Aero-Train built by General Motors, and the world’s largest collection of passenger train drumheads (the illuminated signs on the back of trains).

An exhibit on Pullman Porters explores labor and civil rights history as well as railroad heritage. The 33-acre grounds have an 85-foot observation tower overlooking the Fox River and Green Bay. Rides on vintage trains are offered daily from May through September and on weekends in October. October sees a Pumpkin Train; in December, there’s the Polar Express.
