Railroad museum moves
The Twin City Model Railroad Museum will be relocating to 652 Transfer Road, near the former Amtrak Depot just north of University Avenue. The building is also home to Buttercream Cakes and Chocolat Céleste.
For the past 31 years the museum has been located at 1021 E. Bandana Blvd. in Bandana Square. The new Transfer Road location will allow the museum to become more financially stable while creating new and improved exhibits, interactive model train layouts and other displays.
Museum volunteers began moving existing train layouts and building new exhibits in February. The goal is to reopen at the new location in early spring.
The last day at the Bandana Square facility will be Sunday, Feb. 28.
The Twin City Model Railroad Museum has been a St. Paul attraction since 1934. The museum is an all-volunteer nonprofit whose mission is to celebrate toy trains, the model railroading hobby and the railroad history of the Twin Cities.
