Bringing Diesel and Steel to Life

At the Galesburg Railroad Museum, we are dedicated to gathering and preserving artifacts, historical documents, data, letters, accounts, and other articles related to the history of the local railroad. We are indebted to the many kind people who have donated memorabilia for exhibition. Through our vast collection, we hope that those who visit our museum will learn about railroading and the people whose lives were entwined with it.

We offer tours by appointment, and our quality gift shop is stocked with various items for any railroad or history enthusiast.
