Take a trip back in time to when the railroad connected all of America

My grandfather was a lifelong railroad man - even if he hadn't been though, I would have enjoyed the museum - remembering another time - so enjoyed the train ride as well

We went to museum for the Great Bunny train and it was a blast. They also had other activities set up for kids, egg hunt, games and treats. I was surprised at how interest my kids were in all the information and background that went with the trains when walking through them. Had a wonderful day

We love trains and this is such a great place to visit. Very nice trains on display that you can walk through. Well taken care of. Nice gift shop. I really enjoyed the gallery with the china that was used on trains and other forms of transportation. - quite a collection. Even some from the Hindenburg and Titanic.

Finally made it and had such a great day! We went for the Bunny Train event. Our group ranged in age from 1 year old to people in their 60s. All of us enjoyed our visit, thanks to the wonderful volunteers. We started with a ride around the grounds on the train. The only downside was a long commercial for... More

We came up to see my daughter and her boyfriend in college and needed something to do between lunch and hotel check in. Found this gem on groupon. Was afraid it was going to be too "little kidsy", but it wasn't. We were able to go through many trains. It was a great experience.

We're not train buffs but enjoy history attractions. I had purchased discount tickets for seniors for a special viewing of the museum. Unfortunately, it was a cold, rainy day but we wanted to see what they had there. They have some hands on displays for kids that they would enjoy. We wandered through the displays and reached the train displays.... More

My husband has a membership and I go along with him. At first it was just to go. But now I really learn something new. Every time I go I notice things I missed previously. There is a tower outside to climb in nice weather to see all of Green Bay!

I wonder how many Cheeseheads who idolize the Green Bay Packers and make pilgrimages to the cathedral known as Lambeau Field on Sundays know that one of the oldest and largest railroad museums in the United States is located in Ashwaubenon, Wisconsin, just outside Green Bay. Established in 1956, the National Railroad Museum is dedicated to preserving and interpreting the... More

Yes train fans, Mr. Cooper would think he had died and gone to heaven after seeing this place. There are so many nice exhibits. If you are in Green Bay, you owe it to yourself to swing in and check it out.
