After eleven years developing our railroad museum and railroad layouts, the Northern Railroad Heritage Association, due to the end of our lease period and the owners committed to selling the building, we will be closing the museum in Crosslake, Minnesota as of May 1, 2018.

However, the members are determined to find a new location and rebuild. With that in mind, we are storing as much of the layouts and equipment as possible for reconstruction and development of a new and greater museum.

We invite you to check back at this site and follow our developments.
