At the Princeton Railroad Museum, you'll discover the colorful and dynamic heritage of railroading, the industry that built our nation.  You'll find vibrant railroad art, fascinating exhibits and a remarkable array of railroad artifacts that tell the story of the men and women who worked on the railroad.

  • Devoted to preserving and interpreting the broad impact of railroad development on society, the Museum:
  • Displays over 100 railroad lanterns from the Ken Coleman collection.
  • Pursues an aggressive restoration program of artifacts.
  • Houses exhibits of railroad material relating to both the Virginian and the Norfolk & Western rail lines.  
  • Recognizes that railroad history is alive and continues being made in this millennium.
