The museum is run by an all volunteer staff that loves what they do (and it shows); They are also very knowledgeable. The variety of different trains is impressive. We didn't want to leave, but, look forward to going back! :-)

The Michigan/Indiana state line runs through the scenic property. We went on Chicago Weekend when the Kiddieland Amusement Park and Brookfield Zoo trains were running. The grounds were generally well-kept, but you could tell the museum was in need of funds. There were many areas where old train tracks and other train-related metal objects were discarded. Not much on property to see/do aside from riding the trains, a small gift shop, and a soda fountain . . . maybe in the Summer there is more to do. Parking and entrance to the grounds did not cost. You only pay for train rides. We saw many families were riding together and having fun. You can bring your own picnic lunch. Camping is also available. Overall, a nice day . . . but crowded. Waiting between trains could be 20 or more minutes; we waited 45 minutes to ride the Kiddieland Express (the zoo and amusement park trains do not operate on a regular rotation). Don't expect to zip in and zip out. We took 3 out of the 4 train rides available with the Groupon promotion and it took us nearly 4 hours. You do get a punch card ticket, so we can return in the future and take that 4th ride. Also, check days/times of operation and special events. The Groupon is not good for a few of the themed weekends.

About Hesston Steam Museum


Once upon a time, the American landscape was ruled by great machines, giant, steam-belching constructs that criss-crossed the country in the name of commerce, exploration, and national identity. Although it shares a phrase with fairy tales, this passage describes a very real time: the days of the steam engine. At the Hesston Steam Museum, curators honor this crucial juncture in industrial history with exhibits and artifacts from the 19th and early 20th centuries. Although they cover everything from saw mills to electric power plants, the main attractions are the locomotives. The museum is home to three working railroads, including a narrow-gauge track. In addition to the impressive 1929 Shay engine, the museum is also home to two scale trains: a quarter-scale train designed for amusement use in the early 20th century, and an eighth-scale train hand wrought by hobbyist engineers and machinists. Guests can grab rides on all three before grabbing dessert at the museum's old-fashioned soda fountain or exploring the gift shop for commemorative mementos.
