Press release: Linden Depot Season Opens April 5, 2024

The following press release was sent to the Bloomingtonian:

The Linden Depot Museum will open for the season on Friday, April 5th. The museum will be open Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays from 12:00 PM to 5:00 PM. The admission price, which includes all museum attractions, is $6 for adults and $1 each for children ages twelve and under.

Now for the exciting news! We just returned from New York City, where we visited Grand Central Terminal, the largest train station in the world. 750,000 people use this station every day. While at Grand Central Terminal, we received a special tour from a top executive with the Metropolitan Transit Authority. We traveled through all three train levels and various other  areas of the terminal. The station is magnificent and inspiring. The Linden Depot Museum is now in possession of eight artifacts from Grand Central Terminal, which will be used in a display. We are in the process of creating this new exhibit that will be in development throughout the summer months – visit the Linden Depot Museum often to see our progress.

This summer we will host our 4th Annual Midwest Railroad Fair on Saturday, August 10th from 10 AM to 4 PM. The fair will include railroad exhibitors, railroad vendors, a food vendor, and much more. We have been working on improvements to our 1837 Norris 4-2-0 steam engine replica and will be offering a limited number of train rides during the fair. The train fare is $10 per person, and includes a light snack, drink, and a narrated trip. Tickets are on sale now and are available at the museum or by calling 765-427-3630.  

We have a hot dog vendor scheduled to be at the museum weekly on Tuesdays and Saturdays. Come on out and enjoy the museum.  The museum complex is located at 520 N. Main Street, Linden, IN 47955. We look forward to your visit!
