Definitely a place to take your kids! I came on a quiet weekend and wasn't crowded at all. My first time here was when my grandparents took me on my first stream locomotive ride through here. A saw mill rail cart initially caught my eye and I wanted to check it out. The tree was a nice 10-12 feet across. It's pretty spectacular that there was so much old growth that was that big back in the day. Back at the depot, they have an assortment of engines and passenger cars that you can take a look at. There is also a book store and museum! If you want to take a walk, head west along the main road (there is a walking trail) and you'll come across a lot of vintage rail engines with interesting histories and purposes. On the weekends after April to December, they offer train rides that I believe go down to Snoqualmie falls from the North Bend depot that pass through here. A Thomas train and a Christmas train also run at other times of the year.
The museum is nice and it has old artifacts and items from when it was built. It also had some stories to tell which really intrigued us. We didn't get a chance to ride the train but we explored the place and read the history of it. It's definitely one of the great stops you can take at the town. Parking is plentiful you just have to be lucky to get a close one to the town or have to walk for a bit.
We came to see the 924 on a steam train weekend recently and had a great ride. Unfortunately our ride started a bit late, so our time at the train shed (the more museum like part) was cut pretty short. We still had fun exploring and just riding the train though. We would have liked to learn more about the train we were on, but apparently that's not part of the package (at least for those steam train versions.) A great day either way! It was nice to see Snoqualmie Falls at one end of the line and grab a few pictures through the trees.
This is a great indoor/outdoor museum for the train enthusiast. We especially enjoy it during the running of the Christmas train with our kids! Many restaurants and shops are conveniently located in the slice of Americana towns of Snoqualmie and Northbend that the rail line run between. Parking can be a challenge, so I recommend the gravel lot by the river park. FOLLOW ME for more thoughtful recommendations as I travel the world 🌎
Nice historic place in the downtown with old train engines parked here, kids can enjoy the view of the train engines, you can spend 30 to 40 minutes here. My kid enjoyed seeing the large train engines, also there is a room where toy trains are kept for kids, outside you can see good fall colors as well. Parking lot is right opposite the museum on the road side itself.
