The Sioux City Railroad Museum

Originally known as the Milwaukee Railroad Shops, the Railroad Museum is located along Highway 12 in Sioux City, Iowa.

The 30 acre museum site is nestled in between the scenic Loess Hills and the Big Sioux River. This historical treasure was built in 1917 and was once a large industrial complex that serviced and repaired locomotives and railcars for 65 years.

Only a handful these places still exist in the United States, and after several years of preserving and restoring what has remained, the museum is able to showcase rare artifacts and architecture that represent an important and influential time in our nation’s history.

Combined with the historical atmosphere, The Railroad Museum creates a unique environment for friends and families to learn and enjoy.

We are building tracks for the future!
