  • We did the Fall Color Tour up to Two Harbors and had a blast. The train ride was nice and slow which gave us time to take pictures. Two Harbors is a beautiful little town with several shops to explore...  read more »

  • Never been on a train before it was a great time. This was gift for my parents as well and they had a wonderful Time as well. Would definitely recommend and would definitely do it again. Thank you to a wonderful staff all very friendly and so full of information. Entertainment was outstanding :-)
  • Great museum for kids and adults alike! Though I do recommend taking in the museum when Thomas the Tank Engine is NOT in town.
  • This is a splendid museum. The style with the brick floor and the stores surrounding the trains really add flavor to it, and soon they'll have a 2-8-0 consolidation running as a bonus. Highly recommend checking this out if you're visiting Duluth.
  • Very good museum. Great for kids and adults alike. Went with family that really wanted to go. I did not expect to like it but was pleasantly surprised. Lots of full sized trains (indoors) so great adventure even in the winter or on a bad weather day. It is also more than just trains, they have a lot of history on the harbor and examples of storefronts and businesses from back in the day.
  • Relatively small as museums go, but it is packed with cool stuff to go see! The main attraction is the room way at the bottom full of trains. Many of the engines and cars are set up for visitors to climb inside. We got lucky because a diesel engine pulled in while we were there, and the engineer invited us up and answered some questions about train history. Upstairs there are exhibits on other pieces of local history, as well as an art collection. There was an unusually high number of exhibits that were closed, maybe because we did not come during the peak season.
