The Museum of Transportation houses a world class collection of transportation vehicles.
We will take a beginning tour today. I’ll return to add stories and photos of parts of the massive collection.
The Museum of Transportation is a County Park
The project began in the 1940’s. The Transport Museum Association, Museum of Transportation and St. Louis County Parks collaboration. The museum began using track from 1930 Missouri Pacific railroad.
Excellent Place for Children
Activities for most age groups. There’s a train that circles the property. Unlimited Rides with admission wrist band. There is also a craft station called “Creation Station.” This is popular with guardians and children. Registration required because the room becomes packed with happy youngsters.
Excellent Place for Adult “Children”
Automobile show room with displays beginning with wagons and continues through the 20th Century.
Pevely Dairy Wagon. Looks like fun to me.
Trains? We got ’em!
Built in 1966 – Biggest, heaviest rotary snowplow.
