The Museum of Transportation encompasses all modes of transportation. It all began in 1944 with the acquisition of a mule drawn street car and now the museum has the largest collection of steam locomotives in North America. Other collections at the museum include automobiles that range from a 1901 steam powered delivery truck to an incredibly rare 1963 Chrysler Turbine Car.
Special activities and events happen at the Museum throughout the year. Santa and Mrs. Claus visit each Christmas season with other holiday activities. The Museum holds car shows several times a year that vary in theme of make and model. There is even a miniature train that visitors may ride as many times as they want.
