Our Opening Weekend

History comes alive at the Hesston Steam Museum as real steam locomotives take you on a spectacular two and a half mile journey through deep woods, past lakes and farm fields.

Ride our 1/4 scale and 1/8 scale  steam railroads. Both meander over bridges and through an enchanting wooded landscape.

The Hesston Steam Museum is filled with other steam powered machinery including a steam-powered saw mill, a railroad steam crane, steam powered electric power plant, steam traction engines and more.

Visit The Depot Store for a wide variety of steam related items including tee and sweat-shirts, "Thomas the Tank Engine toys and much more.

Great lunch fare including hot dogs, tacos, pizza slices and ice cream treats are available at the Soda Fountain and Ice Cream Parlor.  Picnickers are welcome to enjoy the wooded grounds.
