Please review our Health & Safety Plan before visiting. Some exhibits are closed for your safety. Due to reduced capacity, reservations are required.
The first priority of the Rochester & Genesee Valley Railroad Museum is the safety of its visitors, volunteers, and members. Over the last few weeks, we have taken every precaution in accordance with state and local authorities. Even though we are a non-profit educational organization that depends on museum admission to keep our doors open, your health and safety takes priority. We thank you for your support, and we look forward to your next visit for fun vintage train rides! Please follow our web sites and Facebook pages for the latest updates.
The Rochester & Genesee Valley Railroad Museum can trace its roots back to 1937. Since our museum was established in 1971, our volunteers have preserved more than 40 pieces of historic railroad equipment along with our 1909 Erie Railroad passenger station to bring Rochester’s rich railroading heritage to life.
Visit the only railroad museum where you can ride the exhibits! Enjoy a mile-and-a-half round trip train ride through our museum grounds, and tour our collections and displays at both ends of the ride. We maintain the largest collection of historic trains and the only operating railroad museum in New York State.
