Museum educators will lead tours of the museum at the top of every hour. Topics include the importance of railroads on both sides, the African American experience, and the Great Locomotive Chase. A historic firing demonstration will take place at the bottom of every hour. Special videos will be played in the museum theater throughout the day.
