Where You "Ride the Exhibits!"

The Museum is open and operates train rides year-round every Saturday and Sunday at 11:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m., excluding a two-week break for Christmas and the New Year. Trains operate rain or shine and depart from our station on 83rd Street East in Parrish. Special weekend events are planned throughout the year and may supersede our regular operating schedule.

Due to the historic nature of our equipment, our cars are not wheelchair accessible. However, there is a wheelchair-friendly loading ramp to board the train. We ask that if you may need assistance boarding to please contact the ticket office ((941)776-0906) prior to arriving to make arrangements.

Great time!

We had a blast. Everyone in our group is over 60 and we loved it. Adam (Conductor) and his staff are kind, courteous, helpful and a lot of fun! The entire staff and actors are volunteers and they do an amazing job. Highly recommend! I haven't laughed that hard in a long, long time. Good fun!

Unique experience!

Nice open-car ride on a hot day.The museum at the other end was very interesting. Good to walk around. Kids were having fun running all over. Enjoyed the ride back to the station. Had fun shopping in the gift store. Close parking and easy walking ramps to train.

Hobo campfire!

Our family enjoyed the train ride to the cookout location. Our trainman was very entertaining and so friendly to everyone. He even led a sing-a-long with some good old train songs. The Campfire location was big, well laid out, nice wood fires all over and lots of hot dogs. A great time!

Very enjoyable!

My husband and I visited today and took a train ride on one of their trains for the first time. We loved it! And we just live about ten minutes away. We will be back! Loved riding through the woods in the air conditioned comfort inside the train car.
