- Located on the site of Minnesota's first railroad maintenance shop, this museum encourages visitors to learn about the railroad industry. Visitors learn about the history of the railroad and can watch the maintenance of passenger cars and locomotives, which operate in the Osceola and St. Croix Valley Railway in Wisconsin. The roundhouse was built in 1907 as part of the Jackson Street complex, founded shortly after the Civil War, to service and maintain steam locomotives. Several public grants and many volunteers have helped in the restoration of the Roundhouse. Admission is free. After your exploration of the railroad, visit the gift shop for a souvenir. Parking is available in the lot adjacent to Pennsylvania Avenue on the right-hand side.
