Looking for something to do with the family this weekend… for free? Looks like Snoqualmie’s Northwest Railway Museum has you covered.
The Northwest Railway Museum will open the Train Shed’s doors, as well as a tour of chapel car 5 Messenger of Peace, free of charge on Saturday, September 23, 2017.
They will also have discounted train excursion tickets as part of Smithsonian Magazine’s 13th annual Museum Day Live!, an initiative in which participating museums across the United States emulate the spirit of the Smithsonian Institution’s Washington DC-based facilities, which offer free admission every day, and open their doors for free to those who download a Museum Day Live! Ticket!
Smithsonian recognizes the extraordinary power of museums, and other cultural institutions, to provide visitors
with insight and inspiration.
The event represents a nationwide commitment to boundless curiosity and the pursuit of knowledge wherever you are. Over 200,000 people downloaded tickets for last year’s event, and this year’s event is expected to attract more museum-goers than ever before.
The Northwest Railway Museum invites visitors to travel to Snoqualmie where they can – visit a Victorian depot and the Train Shed. Learn how the railway changed everything. See and feel the excitement of a working railroad. Travel back in time to experience what travel was like before Interstate highways.
