We are happy to welcome you back to the Museum of Industry.  We have been working to create a safe experience for you and our staff.  Check out our “Know before you go” guide to help prepare you for your visit.

March Break

All Aboard!

Pack your bags and take a trip on the rails at the Museum of Industry this March Break.

As you begin your trip, look up to see our G-scale train circling overhead in the Foyer. 

Meet Samson, an 1838 steam locomotive, Locomotive 151, an ingot train, Locomotive 5, a steam yard locomotive, and Albion, a steam locomotive dating from the 1850s.

Can you find the bear in the woods at our interactive HO-scale model railway set in a detailed industrial landscape?

Young children can gather for Train-themed stories, a puppet show and a look at some of our railroad artifacts including the brass whistle from the 1838 Samson.  What might it sound like?  Receive your own wooden train whistle to take home. 

Visit the Machine Shop, Sawmill, and Printing Press for one of the scheduled demonstrations throughout each day.
