  • Wow! I love to see older trains and this place was awesome for that. We got to see locomotive engines of all sizes, were able to climb up into the cab, see the inside of cabooses and train cars. We al...  more »

  • I had a terrific experience at the museum. It's a museum that you can spend hours at and not see everything. There were some guides that were very helpful and provided a lot of fascinating information and history. Highly recommended.
  • A great time for children and adults. Access to the trains, plenty of things to see. Fun, interactive model train layout
  • As long as you are OK with the entry price (expnsive, but this is not a cheap facility to manage), a great place to visit. Take your time, and you will spend 60, 90 minutes easy. Lots too see, lots of interesting info on the signs. Tip: follow the yellow painted line to get to the entrance. Easy to miss it.
  • This is one of the best places around to check out trains! They have a bunch of old train cars & engines that you can get into and see as well as a great model train exhibit. Well worth a visit.
  • Excellent museum. Enjoyable for the entire family. Be sure to ride the excursion train.

Where to stay in Duluth

Canal Park and the downtown areas offer a full range of lodging, including tower hotels, national-chain motels, inns, and bed and breakfasts. For a more scenic stay, book accommodation with views of Lake Superior. Staying in Canal Park or downtown puts you within easy reach of numerous restaurants, shops, and attractions, but you should also consider bedding down in the historical area east of Chester Park. Many of the inns and bed and breakfasts here occupy turn-of-the-century mansions, and the neighborhood itself offers a quiet respite from busy downtown and Canal Park.
