Good news for fans of all things trains! The Gopher State Railway Museum, located just outside of New Prague, has announced its opening date for the public to come and check it out. The announcement is a welcome one after the museum has been closed for the last two years.

Hi friends and neighbors! We’re crossing our fingers this won’t be the view, but only two weeks until Gopher State Railway Museum is open again after two long years of being closed…HOORAY!!!

We’re looking forward to welcoming all our friends and neighbors back Saturday, 7May from 10a to 3p. Come by and see us. The train won’t be running yet, NSP4 needs a few more repairs this spring before she’s back in service, but we’ll be there and hope you will too. You may get a chance to visit with the crew working on NSP4 and see her fired up for the first time since last October.
Looking forward to seeing all our friends again Saturday, 7May!!
Gopher State Railway Museum's announcement puts the opening day a little less than two weeks away.
If you are unfamiliar with the Gopher State Railway Museum, according to their Facebook page they are "an all-volunteer, nonprofit corporation incorporated in the State of Minnesota. GSRM is located in New Prague, MN, and was established for the purpose of developing 20 acres of privately owned property into a living history railroad museum."

The Gopher State Railway Museum is open on the first Saturday of the month from 10a-3p between May and October. The museum is also open on the third weekend of September during the New Prague Dozinky Days celebration.
