The Northwest Railway Museum’s Train Shed exhibit building is now open for walk-up visits for the summer of 2017. This is the first year visitors have been able to reach the Train Shed without taking part in the weekend train rides offered by the museum.

Train Shed hours have been extended, too. The building is open on Thursdays through Sundays, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Visitors can learn how the railroads changed everything in the Pacific Northwest at their own pace as they explore exhibits, rolling stock and large and small artifacts including the award-winning Wellington Remembered exhibit.

Admission is $10 per person, children younger than 2 can enter free.
