The Minnesota Transportation Museum is a train-lovers dream come true. Full of old train cars, the kids can explore from one car to the next, pretending to be passengers, engineers and conductors. Features include:
- Caboose and classic bus rides
- Interactive exhibits (featuring live-steam restoration efforts)
- Santa's Train Shop and other year-round special events
- Located in Downtown St. Paul, Minnesota
On Saturdays guests can ride a real vintage caboose as part of their admission. Rides last 15 minutes and operate all day between 10-4. No need to book, just come visit the museum, and line up for a ride!
The museum staff is mostly made up of highly knowledgeable volunteer train enthusiasts. Ask them anything. I challenge you to stump them.
