RHCThe Northwest Railway Museum is open 7 days a week year 'round (closed Thanksgiving, Christmas Day, and New Year's Day; there is limited access during Day Out With Thomas and Santa Train events).The Museum consists of several locations, our 1890 Snoqualmie Depot, Railway History Campus and the Centennial Trail Exhibit. Regular Trains depart most weekends. 

There is no admission charge to visit the Snoqualmie Depot; hours are 10 am to 5 pm, daily. Originally built in 1890, the Snoqualmie Depot has been restored to its turn of the 20th Century grandeur, and functions as an operating train station. Museum visitors traveling on the Snoqualmie Valley Railroad can purchase their boarding passes at the original ticket window, and may view the railroad history exhibits in the former gentlemen's waiting room and freight room. A railroad history-themed gift shop (The Depot Bookstore) is housed in the former ladies' waiting room. Public restrooms occupy a portion of the original freight room, and replace the privy originally located just to the east of the structure.

The Centennial Trail Exhibit is on a public walkway, is free, and never closes. 

Special Update

ALL TRAIN PASSENGERS AND CREW MUST WEAR MASKS

Why do we still require masks? Transportation Security Adminsitration ("TSA") regulations currently require all railways, airlines and buses to have persons masked through January 2022. Though social distancing regulations are loosening in much of the region, the Snoqualmie Valley Railroad falls under the jurisdiction of the Federal Railway Administration and TSA. 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. By order of King County, proof of vaccination will be required beginning October 25 for all visitors aged 12 and older. The vaccine requirement is a legal mandate imposed by King County. The Museum is required to enforce the law as a condition of remaining open to the public. The Museum has already lost $1.4 million from closures and capacity reductions, further closures would be absolutely disasterous to the Museum. For more information about our social distancing restrictions please visit our Social Distancing Updates page.
