Mad River & NKP Railroad Museum

2020 Events


  • April 4, 11, 18, 25 Spring Cleanup
  • June 6-7 Opening Weekend
  • July 25 - Doyle McCormack at the Museum Updated


    Opening Day Postponed Until June 6, 2020

    For the past couple of weeks, the Mad River & NKP Railroad Museum has been monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic and are following recommendations from federal, state, and local officials about the best course of action to take.

    In the interest of safety for our customers and our volunteers, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the opening of our 2020 season until June 6th. Our volunteers normally spend the entire month of April preparing for the season and cleaning the museum from the harsh winters. With the current restrictions and an emphasis on social distancing, we are not permitted to gather and perform the tasks necessary to prepare the museum for our original season opening date on May 2nd.

    We're hopeful this postponement is far enough in the future that the current pandemic is under control and we can offer a safe and enjoyable venue for our guests. We will continue to monitor the situation and make future adjustments as needed.

    We appreciate your support and understanding during these uncertain times. We offer our best wishes to you and yours for good health and security during this period. We're looking forward to having a wonderful 2020 season at our museum for all to enjoy.
