Field Trip – Museum of the American Railroad

Join us on November 15th as we explore the history as well as the science & technology of the rail industry.  Explore the influence of technological innovations on everyday life and the vital role the railroad still plays!

Our trip will consist of  2  45 min stations  divided by age groups K-5th and 6th -up  This way the information given on tour enhances the experience.
Educational Program Summary:
In the Museum, students explore the intersection of basic economic concepts such as production, consumption, industrialization, and urbanization. FIELD TO FACTORY situates students in a time before modern technology and explores why railroad development was so critical to successfully shipping agricultural and farming goods. Using critical thinking and problem-solving skills, students learn how the railroads have met and still meet essential needs of moving raw materials to manufacturing centers, and the final products to distribution. With industrial and agricultural products as examples, the journey from origin to consumer is traced. Students also develop an understanding for how local railroad stops turned small farming towns into commercial gathering centers, which evolved into urban cities that attracted people by the thousands.
Train Yard Tour Summary:
The walking tour experience situates students back in time before cars and airplanes, when passenger rail travel was at its zenith. During the walking tour, students climb aboard various types of passenger cars to get the full experience of how passengers slept, ate, and lived while traveling cross-country on trains. Students tour locomotives that were powered by different energy sources, which enhances their understanding of railroad technological evolution. Students also visit a caboose and learn where the train crew lived and slept while not on the job while also simultaneously learning about various jobs on the railroad, such as the conductor, engineer, the fireman, and the brakeman. Finally, students will observe and discuss various freight cars and their functions, such as tank cars, box cars, and refrigerator cars.
No one under 5yrs plz, this is for safety reasons
Deadline for field trip tickets Nov. 3rd  5pm
