The awe-inspiring power of trains awaits you at the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania, where you can take the throttle in an authentic freight locomotive cab. Sit in an engineer's seat, explore a caboose, experience a turn-of-the-20th-century passenger station and inspect a 62-ton locomotive from underneath! Pennsylvania's premier museum of railroading features a world-class collection of more than 100 historic locomotives and vintage railroad cars, the innovative and interactive Stewart Junction railway education center, a working restoration shop, a vast library and archives (by appointment) and the Whistle Stop Shop museum store.

Now you can visit six great attractions in historic Strasburg, Pennsylvania when you purchase the convenient Strasburg Passport. It's a great value! And, you don't have to visit all six attractions on the same day! So relax and enjoy while you experience the real Lancaster County.
