See you April 11, 2020 for Easter Bunny Train Rides!
The Rochester & Genesee Valley Railroad Museum is home to the largest collection of historic trains in New York State. Your visit begins at our restored 1909 Erie Railroad train station located off Route 251 in the Town of Rush. Friendly volunteers welcome you aboard authentic freight train cabooses for a mile-and-a-half round-trip ride through our museum grounds. Tour our unique exhibits and discover Rochester’s rich railroad heritage. Take a peek behind the scenes inside our Restoration Shop. Join us for special events April through December! ALL ABOARD!
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 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.
