COVID-19 Protocols

Passenger seating within each train car will have appropriate social distancing between each group of friends or family as outlined by Executive Order #195.

Per Executive Order #163, proper face coverings are required of all museum staff and visitors while in buildings and on the grounds. Children under the age of five and individuals with disabilities who cannot wear a mask, or cannot safely wear a mask, because of the disability as defined by the Americans with Disability Act are exempt.

TSA requires proper wearing of face masks on the train, per federal law. Failure to comply will result in denial of boarding or removal and may result in penalties under federal law. Children under the age of two and individuals with disabilities who cannot wear a mask, or cannot safely wear a mask, because of the disability as defined by the Americans with Disability Act are exempt.

Passengers will board and deboard the train in a one-way traffic flow through the rail car. Cars will be sanitized between each ride, including seats, windows, and handrails.

In accordance with CDC and other guidelines, access to some areas and exhibits will be limited or restricted. The museum is walking intensive and involves entering and exiting several buildings and outside areas. Visitors with mobility issues are encouraged to bring their own wheelchairs, walkers, etc., as required. One car of the train is equipped for ADA accessibility including two wheelchair spaces and the availability of a wheelchair lift. The other cars on the train are not ADA accessible due to the vintage nature of their construction.
