Discover Trains Big and Small

All Aboard!

Imagine the adventures that the impressive Reuben Wells, a 35-foot-long, 55-ton steam engine had in its day. Travel back to 1890s Madison, Indiana where this very engine conquered the steepest railroad grade in the United States. The most powerful locomotive in the world back then, the Reuben Wells is right here at The Children’s Museum for you to enjoy along with our other train experiences.

  • Operate control lights, switches, and signals on the track.
  • Crawl inside a tunnel to marvel at miniature trains in action.
  • Play with train toys and sell train tickets at the station.
  • Design a railroad or race trains on the computer.
