The Northwest Railway Museum is open 7 days a week year 'round (closed Thanksgiving, Christmas Day, and New Year's Day; there is limited access during Day Out With Thomas and Santa Train events). The Museum consists of several locations, our 1890 Snoqualmie Depot, the Centennial Trail Exhibit, and Railway History Center. There is no admission charge to visit the Snoqualmie Depot; hours are 10am to 5 pm. The Centennial Trail Exhibit is on a public walkway, is free, and never closes. The Railway History Center is available by guided tour departing most first and second trains of the day on the weekend for a nominal fee; please check our Regular Trains section for current times. Regular Trains also depart from the North Bend Depot.
