“Excellent Railroad Museum”

Lake Superior Railroad Museum

Attraction details
Reviewed 29 September 2009

This place has some excellent train displays including a giant articulated steam locomotive. And, connected to the Children's museum, you can make it a 3/4 or whole day trip. Unfortunately, you'll have to search for restaurants for lunch.

Avoid the quick tourist train that just goes to the creek. It's a waste of time and money. You might want to take the train which goes to Split Rock, but if you drive, you can stop at other places along the way.

The train museum was one of the highlights of my visit to Duluth! It's within easy walking distance of the rest of downtown Duluth and is joined with several museums at the Cultural Center/Train Depot. There are dozens of locomotives, many of which you can walk into, as well as recreations of the shops that used to be at the Depot. There's also several short films to watch about the history of train travel in Duluth. Very educational, and a must for any train buff!

This is a nice railroad museum in Duluth. They also run excursions to Two Harbors under the name North Shore Scenic RR. (http://66.116.202.38/Home/Home.asp).
