What is the Missouri Model Railroad Museum?

It’s more than a museum, it’s an experience!

History comes alive in museums when visitors are able to see and touch the past and experience those things that helped shape our nation and make our future. Our museum will show just that, with railroad memorabilia and artifacts, art works, and most importantly, vast areas of dioramic models of the different railroads that first entered Missouri and helped develop our state into the major transportation network of rails it is – trains, trains, and more trains. Exhibits will allow patrons to see and walk along with scale model trains as they pass through cities, cross the Missouri River, and race across the rural farm country of Missouri. Your visit may include viewing videos, movies, and listening to historians and other rail enthusiasts tell the story about the different railroads that crossed Missouri with famous passenger trains and countless freight trains. Our plan is to offer youth programs, scout programs, and resources for educators, with scenery clinics, layout and diorama workshops, merit badges, field trips for public, private, and home schools. Education and entertainment at its best!
