As you may have gathered, I have a couple of boys who really like trains, so if we can find a train museum, they’re always happy to stop. The benefit of the train museum in Duluth is that it’s in the same building as the children’s museum, so we could see two different things with one stop.
Although there are a few small model railroads on display, this museum has actual trains that you go on. From engines to the mail car to the dining car to the snowplow, you can actually check out real trains. This was a big deal to the kids, and my husband enjoyed seeing the real trains as well and learning the history of the railroads in Minnesota.
With the combination of trains and a children’s museum, the Depot is a must-see stop if you’re visiting Duluth with young kids.
I liked that place. It was really fun. It had a lot of trains and even some trains that people could ride on. That place was so cool that I wanted to stay there until the season was done.
