The National Railroad Museum inspires lifelong learning by providing dynamic educational opportunities through the preservation of railroad objects, engaging exhibits and innovative programs. ~~ Mission Statement of the National Railroad Museum

The roots of the museum go back to 1956 when a group of local enthusiasts began a quest to acquire a steam locomotive for a city park. It has grown into one of the largest railroad museums in the United States with over a dozen steam locomotives, several diesels, a Pennsylvania RR GG-1 electric, and numerous rail cars including a railway post office, passenger cars, freight cars and miscellaneous pieces.

The collection includes one of two GM Aerotrains built, a collection of drumheads and the British train, pulled by the Dwight D. Eisenhower and two cars used by the General during WWII.
