Monticello Railway Museum


Built in 1899, the restored depot is the departure point for a weekend afternoon train ride to the Monticello Railway Museum.

The Monticello Railway Museum is an all-volunteer organization in central Illinois with an operational railroad main line yard open to the public. The museum offers train rides on Saturdays and Sundays from May through October, regardless of weather conditions, as well as a number of special events throughout the year.

In addition, the museum also collects, preserves, interprets, and exhibits materials and artifacts from throughout the fascinating history of trains and railroading. Make plans to exhibit rail cars and other equipment, and view their museum displays on your next visit to Monticello!
