Important Notice

The air conditioning at the Railroaders Museum has not been running at 100% capacity all summer and we apologize for this convenience. However, starting Wednesday 9/28 we will be installing a new air conditioning system which will take approximately 3 days. At that time we will have no air conditioning at the Railroaders Museum until the unit is installed. We are hoping to have the new system up and running on Monday October 3rd. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your patience during the installation.
