Monticello Railway Museum
Make this Mother’s Day special by treating Mom to an enjoyable ride with her family on a vintage train. Moms ride free on the weekend trains when accompanied by their children!
You may board the train at the Nelson Crossing Depot (the main Museum site) or at the Wabash Depot in downtown Monticello. The train ride lasts approximately one hour. Passengers may also choose to lay over at either depot to view displays and catch a later train back. You can walk through the display cars and view many pieces of rolling stock, as well as visit the Museum’s gift shop. At the Wabash Depot in Monticello, you can walk to many shops and restaurants around Monticello’s Courthouse Square.
Want to ride in the cab of the diesel locomotive instead? A limited number of cab ride upgrade tickets are available for most trips. For information and cab ride tickets, see the ticket agent when you visit the Museum.
