Temporary Emergency Closure Notice

The Northwest Railway Museum will remain closed to the public through at least May 4, 2020.

The Governor of Washington State has issued an emergency proclamation prohibiting public gatherings of more than 250 individuals.  King County health officials have issued mandatory guidelines for all congregations of less than 250 individuals that require proactive interventions to ensure the public's safety.  Consequently, the Museum has made the decision to close to serve the best interests of the community, our visitors, volunteers, and staff.

The Museum is postponing all programs scheduled through May 4, 2020, including the railway rules class, Smithsonian Museum Day, regular train operations, private birthday parties, private rentals, School Train, Train Shed gallery visits, Snoqualmie Depot visits, and field trips. 

As a public gathering space, this is a preventative action to slow the spread of the virus that causes COVID-19, and ensure the safety of our community, visitors, volunteers and staff.

If you have questions or have pre-purchased tickets, contact to reschedule; we will honor or refund all tickets.
