Trains and So Much More
While the locomotives, railcars, and the Historic Snoqualmie Depot often attract the most attention from visitors, the Northwest Railway Museum’s collection expands much further. Alongside these large objects, the museum has an extensive collection of small objects, weighing less than one ton. The Museum also offers opportunities for visitors and researchers to deepen their understanding of the many peoples, places, and events that have shaped the development and impact of railroads in the Pacific Northwest through its Library and Archives Collection.
In addition to supporting restoration, the Museum cares for its multifaceted collection through preservation, conservation, and restoration. As the largest museum in East King County and the largest Railroad Museum in Washington State, the Museum strives to help share the history of the impacts of the railways for future generations to come.
