Welcome to Our Museum

Our Museum will delay opening for the 2020 season. This action is to support the effort to contain the spread of COVID-19. We have tentatively set opening day as until April 18, 2020 pending guidance issued by the State of Michigan and the CDC.

Come visit the New Buffalo Railroad Museum — There is something here for everyone! Admission is FREE

Located on the grounds of what was once the largest train yard in Southwest Michigan, the New Buffalo Railroad Museum is home to exhibits and collections recalling New Buffalo’s proud heritage as a railroad hub for both the Pere Marquette and Chesapeake & Ohio (also known as the Chessie System). The rail line behind the Museum still carries CSX freight trains through the stanchions of one of the original coal towers.  Visitors can stroll through the Chessie Box Car and Troop Pullman Sleeper Car.  Everyone can operate the hand-crafted model train layout that delights visitors of all ages.

  • Free Guided Tours
  • Children’s Activities | Kid Friendly

Founded in 1989, the Museum not only exhibits artifacts relating to the rail industry, it houses items of historic interest and value to the greater New Buffalo area.

We are located @ 530 S. Whittaker St., New Buffalo, Michigan
