The Jackson Street Roundhouse is the Transportation Museum's Headquarters. Not to be confused with our
Tourist Railway in Osceola
, this is the interactive museum with short train rides up and down our tracks every Saturday and on special occassions.
Travel through history with exhibits featuring local and regional railway & bus history. We have 50 historic train cars on site, and are housed in a building that represents a significant part of Twin Cities history.
Experience a genuine operating roundhouse turntable, one of the last of its kind in the country.
Witness restoration of historic railway operating equipment.
AND REAL TRAIN RIDES EVERY SATURDAY!!!
(even heated caboose rides in the winter)
Rides last approx. 15 minutes, and are included in the admission ticket.
Walk-ups always welcome, but for faster entrance, purchase tickets online, and check-in at ticket counter upon entering.
