High school Graduation Party - An Eventective User from Lehigh Acres, Florida

La Grange Railroad Museum was a lovely venue choice for my niece’s high school graduation celebration! We had a group of about 15 people and the train served as a wonderful, intimate venue! I live out of state and the welcoming staff made booking and execution of the event easy! The celebration was smooth and everyone enjoyed it! The venue was clean and family friendly! Considering booking again for future events. I highly recommend reserving the La Grange Railroad Museum for your events!

A delightful place to have an event! - An Eventective User

We had our daughter’s baby shower here and it was the perfect venue. The train car is so adaptable to any need. Our shower was so cute and everyone commented it was the perfect place. Plenty of room to visit, a great place to set up food, and the caboose let us spread put. They kept the museum open for visits and access to bathroom. It was perfect-an event to remember!

Management Response
Thank you so much for the kind review... We work VERY hard to ensure every wedding, rehearsal dinner, and reception dinner. birthday party, gender reveals, and showers are as much fun as possible, and we remain flexible to everyone's needs.
Great place to gather - An Eventective User from Hutchinson, KS

We used the museum for our wedding and reception last summer. It was very special for us to gather in this historic venue, and the volunteer staff was outstanding. I would recommend this museum for anyone needing a small venue.

Great Event Space! - An Eventective User from Louisville, KY

An excellent venue - Bob & Jason were wonderful to work with for set up and take down. The main showroom was the perfect dance floor for ~30 teens and the high ceilings provided excellent acoustics for the music! Having a separate room for buffet-style food helped keep the flow of the party moving. What a great venue!!

Great for Bridal Shower - An Eventective User from Louisville , Kentucky

I love this place but I love the staff even more Mr. Bob and Ms. Gail was so helpful and very understanding . I live out of town so me playing a bridal shower from 10 hours away was a little difficult but the staff made it super easy . If you have any even I would most definitely recommend this place.

Fun and Different - An Eventective User from Louisville, KY

I hosted a small gathering of 15 at the Railroad Museum and it was AMAZING! The staff is so accommodating and the location and history was so fun and unique. Our group was small enough that we could comfortably spread out through the train car but it was also great for coming together for sharing stories. Thank you for such a unique opportunity.
