We are a nonprofit museum dedicated to the preservation of Railroad History and the heritage of the past, educating present and future generations.
Our museum is located in the St. Louis San-Francisco Locomotive No.4524, Burlington Baggage Car, Chicago and Northwestern Commuter Car and Burlington Northern Caboose, as well as the new Max Jahn Depot. The depot is a replica of an 1890s-era rural depot, based on the original prints from the depot at Elsinore, MO.
We have artifacts, equipment, photos, paintings and much more from the St. Louis San-Francisco Railroad and other Railroads.
There are many hands-on activities for visitors of all ages. We also have videos of Steam and Diesel Trains, and a Model Train Layout. You are welcome to explore the Frisco Locomotive 4524, Commuter Car, Caboose, and the depot.
We are in Grant Beach Park with access to a public pool, playground and picnic area. We are also on City Utilities Bus Route.
The staff at the museum are volunteers, many of whom have a connection to the railroad industry and can answer your questions.
