Minnesota Transportation Museum

Come join In

Join our effort to keep the Roundhouse and Railroad alive and running. Your time, talent, energy and knowledge is needed. If you ever dreamed of being around trains...now is your chance!!!

People Power

Our locomotives run on either steam or diesel but our museum runs on pure manpower provided by volunteers, interns, and trade students. Check out what it takes to keep our trains moving.


Bring your spoken word as you interact with children and visitors from all around about our transportation story.
