The museums of the Iron Trail are unlike any you’ve ever experienced before. You’ll meet costumed performers or retired miners wearing hardhats, who tell amazing real life stories. You’ll climb aboard exhibits, take rides on an electric trolley and experience Imax Theatre films on a forty-foot high dome.
Our museums come alive as you re-live the 1980 gold Olympics and women’s gold Olympics by film, polka, eat ethnic foods, help a blacksmith bend iron or get behind the wheel of a 1950’s Greyhound Bus. You’ll even be able to touch Judy Garland’s piano, hop aboard a train or read about Will Steger’s Antarctica adventure.
With immigrants from over forty countries settling our area and working as miners, loggers and railroaders, our history is preserved and shines everyday at our great museums.
Family Adventure Attraction Passes that provide discount admission to our museums are available online.
You’ll hear children say they want to come back again tomorrow as they smile from ear to ear. We invite you and your family to climb aboard, take an historical journey and discover why the Iron Trail is “A Great Way to Getaway!”
