Choo Choo Sneak Preview offered at South Dakota State Railroad Museum

The South Dakota State Railroad Museum is thinking outside of the boxcar amid COVID-19 pandemic and offering a Choo-Choo Sneak Preview for a personalized tour for participants.

Curator Rick Mills will guide the more personalized tour which will be only offered on weekends and slotted times. Groups of 8 attendees can tour the facility for a socially distanced one hour viewing and a person Q & Q session with refreshments provided.
