This museum has alot to see. The best part is to get out into the train yard and see all of the different cars and engines they have. Charles Shawbs car the Loreto is very cool.

Great food at a good price
The service was great and they kept your coffee cup always filled up
50-60’s atmosphere hasn’t changed and wouldn’t want it to do so
Love “The Mess” eggs potatoes bacon altogether is my favorite

By all means, if you are ever in Altoona, PA, be sure to visit the Altoona Railroaders Memorial Museum, it's well worth you time and you will enjoy the experience. They have done a very good job of showing the history of railroading in our town and area.

There were awesome exhibits in the museum, one allowed you to control a train and where it went and you had about a few seconds to choose where the correct place it should go is! Overall the whole place is nice and air conditioned. Easy to navigate, and clean! 100% recommended!

Purchased both tickets for the Curve and Museum. Enjoyed walking inside and close to Amtrak station. Lots of cool engines and cars and a nice area to walk. We stood on the overpass and watched a few trains roll thru. Lots of fun.
