If Creation Station is in your plans, purchase tickets when you arrive.

The Barrett’s Landing Cafe’ has many healthy choices including string cheese, pretzels, and the like.

The Transportation Chaser

The National Museum of Transportation houses “one of the largest and best collections of transportation vehicles in the world,” according to the Smithsonian Institution.

For the transportation enthusiast, the National Museum of Transportation is THE place to be.  We have an extensive collection of sole survivors and one-of-a-kind artifacts.

Allow two to three hours for your visit.  There is a lot of walking at the National Museum of Transportation.  Please plan accordingly.

While the vast majority of the Museum is outdoors, we have great indoor facilities, too.

Be sure and visit The Earl C. Lindburg Automobile Center.  Ten decades of automobile history are housed in this one building.  (While this building houses a permanent collection, the Museum hosts a wide variety of exceptional car shows annually, too.)

The National Museum of Transportation has extraordinary trolley volunteers, too. If trolley history is your passion, visit on a day the trolley line is operating. The trolley operators look forward to sharing their knowledge with our guests.

Ready to visit?  Set your GPS to:  2933 Barrett Station Road, Kirkwood, MO  63122.  Enter the Museum at The William R. and Laura Rand Orthwein Education and Visitor Center.

Please check the Calendar Page for daily activities.  Guided tours are available through the private rail collection.

Many guests purchase a ‘National Museum of Transportation Catalog of the Collection’ prior to their visit to best understand our extensive collection. Visit the ‘Boxcar Boutique’ on this site, to purchase a catalog.  Allow two-three weeks for delivery.
