I just took my entire family to visit the Northwest Railway Museum in Snoqualmie, WA.  It was a great experience and I highly recommend it to anyone interested in trains, the Pacific Northwest, or family events in the greater Seattle or Bellevue, WA area.  The Northwest Railway Museum in Snoqualmie, WA is located about 40-45 minutes east of Seattle, WA.

The Nortthwest Rainway Museum in Snoqualmie, WA is a turn of the century train depot surrounded by a number of historic and antique trains, engines, boxcars, and cabooses.  Children can explore and play in the majority of the cars.  They also have great volunteers who explain each train and the aspects of working on antique trains. 

We went on my daughter's pre-school field trip.  It involved a discussion of train conductor signalling and communication, a story time, a treasure hunt, and puzzles and games.  The highlight of the days was a train ride in one of the older trains.  The train went from downtown Snoqualmie to the Snoqualmie Falls and Salish Lodge and back.  The whole excursion took about 3 hours.  The train ride itself was 30 minutes.

On the whole, it was a great trip and experience, even for my children who are not particularly interested in trains.  In the greater Seattle area, the Northwest Train Museum in Snoqualmie, WA is a great tourist attraction, particularly on a sunny day. 

My favorite exhibit was the small orange engine that you can climb into located in the middle of the park.
