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:

The Minnesota Transportation Museum / Jackson Street Roundhouse

Jackson Street Roundhouse

  • 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.

On select Wednesdays, the Minnesota Transportation Museum hosts Tots & Trains from 10am - 12pm. Tots and Trains includes a train-themed story time, a craft and tot-friendly open play areas.  Parents can relax with coffee and treats and there is often a food truck available with a special Tots & Trains lunch deal.  See our Family Fun Calendar or MTM's website for dates.
