Ellis Railroad Museum - Ellis, Kansas
model train layout at Ellis Railroad Museum

The Ellis Railroad Museum fills four rooms in an 80 year old community building in downtown Ellis, Kansas. The museum's web site describes over 5,000 square feet of working model train layout, but that must be the dimensions of the entire museum. Still, the museum is interesting and worth a visit. The upstairs houses a collection of 1,200 dolls which may be toured at no additional cost.

A Union Pacific caboose is located next to the Ellis Railroad Museum, along with a small depot which was moved to the site from Penokee, Kansas. From Memorial Day Weekend until Labor Day, a 1/3 scale General Motors Aero Streamliner departs from the depot and travels along a 2.5 mile track. (Over 12 years- $2, 5-12 years- $1)

Most visitors will spend about 45 minutes in the museum.
