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.
All summer long, children 3-11 can enjoy a trip on our regular weekend excursions completely FREE! Free admission and NO BOOKING FEES! Just select the Free Children ticket option when making your booking with us.
There is a limit of two free tickets per paid adult, per booking. Have a bigger family? No problem! Just make a second booking, ensuring each booking has at least one paid adult.
