About the Museum Minimize

Founded in 1962, the Museum of the American Railroad is a not-for-profit Texas corporation dedicated to celebrating the heritage and exploring the future of railroads through historic preservation, research, and educational programming. The museum collects artifacts and archival material from the railroad industry to exhibit and interpret their significance in American life and culture. Exhibits and general programs are provided year-round.  Educational programs are available to local schools and universities through study trips, in-class programming & outreach, and online resources.

In its most ambitious project to date, the Museum closed its location in Dallas’ Fair Park to relocate its collections and operations 30 miles north to Frisco, Texas. The Frisco site is currently under construction and access to the locomotive and rolling stock collection is limited to scheduled tours. For more information on tours, please see the “Tour Information and Directions” page under the Visit tab above. Additionally, the Museum currently maintains interim offices, exhibits, and retail at the Frisco Heritage Museum located a few hundred yards north of the new, permanent site.

Historic Santa Fe Locomotives Arrive in Frisco

 

It’s been nearly three decades in the making! Four historically significant diesel locomotives have finally arrived at their permanent home at the Museum of the American Railroad, three of which came from the Santa Fe Railway’s historic collection. Their arrival is the culmination of a successful partnership between two railroad museums 2,000 miles apart – a project that began before our historic move to Frisco.
