History comes to life on National Railroad Museum history tour

Local News

The National Railroad Museum is inviting families to take a step back in time for their fifth annual History Treasure Tour.

16 historical organizations throughout Brown County are opening their doors to give visitors a behind-the-scenes look detailing the area’s rich history. Some of the self-guided tour’s stops include the Neville Public Museum, the UW-Green Bay Archives & Area Research Center, and the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame. 

Along with taking a ride on both dining cars and hand cars, families will be able to enjoy hands-on activities while having fun learning about history.

“I think this is a really good opportunity to connect with history in a really fun way,” says Jacqueline Frank, the CEO of the National Railroad Museum, “A lot of times we look at history and we have to learn what we read in books, but honestly it’s stories. It’s what your grandparents (or great-grandparents) experienced.”

The History Treasure Tour will take place on Wednesday, May 15 from 4-8 p.m. The tour is free to the public, and those interested can click this link for more information.
