The National Railroad Museum, located in Ashwaubenon, Wisconsin, is a testament to the dedication of community volunteers who founded it in 1956. As one of the oldest and largest institutions in the U.S. dedicated to preserving and interpreting the nation's railroad history, it offers a unique insight into the evolution of railroading over the years.
The museum's collection is a journey through more than a century of railroading. It includes notable items such as an Aerotrain, Union Pacific Big Boy No. 4017, one of the world's largest steam locomotives, and British Railways Class A4 No. 60008 Dwight D Eisenhower. These exhibits provide a tangible connection to the past, allowing visitors to explore the technological advancements and historical significance of these machines.
The museum building is home to a wide variety of railroad artifacts, an archive, and a photography gallery. These collections offer a comprehensive view of the railroad industry, from the tools and uniforms used by workers to the historical documents and photographs that capture the essence of railroading in different eras.
