In the interest of public safety and an abundance of caution, Iron Spike Model Train Museum will be closed until April 1, 2020 to try and help minimize the spread of COVID-19. This decision reduces the Museum's regular income by at least 75%. Your donation, at this time in particular, will help the Museum continue once the contact restrictions can be eased.

The Museum is an important part of the local landscape and draws over 5000 visitors each year to Washington, MO. Your support during this crisis would be greatly appreciated.
