The Sioux City Railroad Museum was established in 1995 by the Siouxland Historical Railroad Association on the 29-acre, multi-building historic site of the former Milwaukee Railroad Shops terminal to help the city of Sioux City preserve and interpret its railroad heritage. Our museum campus supports the implementation of railroad-related historic preservation projects and the delivery of railroad heritage education programs. Our museum is devoted to highlighting artifacts, buildings, and structures that showcase the Granger Region (i.e. the Upper Middle West area) railroad industry. It is important for area residents to know the history of the trunk line and western railroads that spurred the colonization of the farmsteads of northwest Iowa and the opening of a major gateway to the Dakotas. To help connect people with this history we offer regular and special exhibitions; and we provide docent-led walking tours, special talks by historians, and humanities presentations.
