  • The Duluth depot is a very historic building. It was constructed in approximately 1892 when Duluth was the railway hub of the north. When you go down the stairs (where people went to board the trains) there is a very impressive railroad museum which allows you to go in a variety of different historical railroad cars.
  • Had such an amazing time visiting the Duluth Depot! So much history in such a historic location. You're able to go walking through some of the cars and see how small those areas actually were! The gift shop was also fun and wasn't just full of over priced nonsense. My husband and I will definitely be returning during the summer for one of their Train Ride Shows!!
  • Very nice, lots of history certainly. If you would like to see how life was years ago, you'll enjoy it. Our family worked for railroad companies, so we were impressed. Just wish it wasn't so expensive.
  • Love this museum! We took our 9 year old nephew here for his first time and he thought it was pretty cool. The Train Museum is set up with old shop windows, which lend themselves to the historic feel of this building, and interactive exhibits are perfect for keeping young ones engaged. There are other exhibits and museums throughout The Depot, but the trains are a must see. We've also attended a wedding here- lovely!
  • Nice trains and lots of stuff for the kids to do. Giant bug attraction was pretty disappointing.
