The National Museum of Transportation encompasses all modes of transportation. It all began in 1944 with the acquisition of a mule drawn street car and now the museum has the largest collection of steam locomotives in North America. Other collections at the museum include automobiles that range from a 1901 steam powered delivery truck to an incredibly rare 1963 Chrysler Turbine Car. The National Museum of Transportation even has a tugboat that visitors can actually board and explore! U.S. Air Force aircraft are also on display. If it moves, the National Museum of Transportation probably has it on display!
Special activities and events happen at the Museum throughout the year. Birthday parties can be held in the Creation Station. Santa and Mrs. Claus visit each Christmas season with other holiday activities. The Museum holds car shows several times a year that vary in theme such as one featuring vintage autos built in St. Louis, or all models of Mustangs, or all Fords, Chevys and Oldsmobiles, and even a show featuring fire trucks. There is even a miniature train that visitors may ride as many times as they want.
The hours that the Museum is open vary by season. An admission fee is charged. Additional fees may apply for certain activities. See website for current hours and prices.
