Top 10 List – We are Open
Posted on April 19, 2022 by Dina Miller
We want to make sure you have the info on what is open in Indiana's Cool North. Some on the list are opening for the season, some are returning after being closed for awhile, and some have been open all along! So begin planning now to visit us and experience all that we have to offer.
Hesston Steam Museum
All aboard for an exhilarating day that whisks visitors back to the golden age of railroads and gives a great lesson in steam-powered engines to boot.
This museum, located in the small town of Hesston just outside of LaPorte, features three different operating trains that give everyone a taste of what it was like to ride the rails in times past.
Visitors enjoy the Steam Museum’s biggest train – a full-sized Narrow Gauge locomotive, the medium-size vintage Kiddieland train that once provided entertainment as part of small amusement parks, or a one-eighth scale of the type built by craftsmen.
