Traveling Trunk

Bring the Railway To Your Classroom

Teachers — this one is for you.

We'd love for you to bring a school trip to the Oklahoma Railway Museum, but we realize that's not always practical. So we made a way for the Museum to come to you.

The Traveling Trunk is designed to teach children in grades Pre-K to 6th about railroading. Introduce your class to the history of America's rail transportation network with artifacts, activities, lesson plans, and toys that bring this rich tradition to life.

You can pick up the Traveling Trunk for your classroom by giving us a $25 refundable deposit. You can then keep the trunk for up to two weeks before returning it to the Oklahoma Railway Museum.

Don't wait for a field trip to introduce your classroom to railroading. Bring the Museum to your students. Contact us today at (405) 424-8222 or info@oklahomarailwaymuseum.org to reserve your time with the Traveling Trunk.
