Experience how the railroad changed everything

Special Update, Saturday, May 15, 2021: Though social distancing regulations are loosening in much of the region, the Snoqualmie Valley Railroad’s train is a federally regulated railroad. As such, the Museum is under the jurisdiction of the Federal Railroad Administration which requires railroads to follow Covid-19 CDC guidelines. We intend to continue operating the railroad subject to those transportation guidelines.  We ask that all visitors over the age of 2 and require for those over the age of 5 to wear a mask that covers both nose and mouth while visiting; this is required by the CDC's railway requirements to be able to continue to allow the public to experience the Museum. For more information about our social distancing restrictions please visit our Social Distancing Updates page.
