COVID 19

UPDATE: Museum and Railway Postponements Due to the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The current health pandemic has caused disruptions in all our lives, and that includes the Minnesota Transportation Museum and its Osceola & St. Croix Valley Railway. At the present time, we are following the guidance of our elected leaders and health officials by remaining closed to the public. Some limited volunteer work is taking place in a safe and healthy manner, in order to prepare the museum and railway for resuming operations as soon as possible.

While the situation remains fluid and MTM remains flexible, the following is our best estimate of when operations might resume:

Osceola & St. Croix Valley Railway
We are tentatively scheduled to resume operations for the Fall Color season in September and October. You are encouraged to book your tickets early. If there is a need to cancel the season, you will have the option of a refund or applying the ticket to next season. Click below to schedule a trip for you and your significant others:

Museum at Jackson Street Roundhouse
Tentative plans to reopen in early July. Please check back for details.

Minnehaha Depot in Minneapolis
Closed for the season. Following guidelines of Minneapolis Parks Board.

MTM Needs Your Support
With the train parked in Saint Paul and the museum closed, our income has come to a halt. In order to pay for heat, rent, salaries, perform train and building maintenance, and continue building our exhibits we need your donations more than ever. Congress has provided benefits to those of you who donate during this difficult time. Please make a donation by clicking below:
