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.

Sanders Family of North Dallas Donates Spectacular Model Train Layout
We’ve received several offers of model railroad layouts over the years, and have had to graciously turn them down due to a lack of space.  But, one came along recently that was an offer we simply couldn’t refuse.  While our long-range plans have always included a model train layout, we assumed it would be in our yet-to-be-constructed permanent building.

Farewell to a Dear Friend
We are very saddened at the loss of one of the Museum’s finest.  John DeGolyer “Jack” Maxson passed away on October 21st.  Jack was a dear friend to many of us and a long-time supporter of the Museum of the American Railroad.  He served on the Board of Trustees for 17 years and held a number of officer positions including Chairman.

Muckleroy Foundation Makes Major Gift to Museum
The Muckleroy Foundation has been a long-time supporter of the Museum, providing gifts and in-kind contributions for nearly 20 years.  The Foundation recently provided a $50,000 contribution toward capital construction projects at the Museum.  The gift put us over the top, adding to other sources of funding which allowed for completion of Phase II-A construction.
