Plan Your Visit

Please be advised with regards to making plans for your visit: We do NOT offer train rides. 

The Historic RailPark & Train Museum and L&N Depot brings alive the magic and adventure of railroading everyday. This historic national landmark allows you to see, touch, hear and explore important railroad artifacts of our region’s heritage. Start your journey with a visit today!

Prices include both the self-guided museum and the guided railcar tour. Half price admission is available for self-guided tours of the museum only.

Please call ahead if you are concerned about making it in time for a railcar tour, as these times are subject to change on a daily basis. If there is a certain tour time you are looking to attend, we recommend arriving 5 to 10 minutes beforehand to ensure we can accommodate you.

If you are taking the last tour of the afternoon, we recommend arriving 45 minutes to an hour before your tour time to have time to experience the museum exhibits on the first and second floor.
