Also in town this weekend at Emma’s Event Center is the Sioux City Model Railroad Show supporting the Sioux City Cosmopolitan Club. We will have two tables set-up at the train show with information about our 31 acre museum complex and we will also have many of our gift shop items available for sale.
This year we are also introducing a new annual membership program which many of you may be interested in. A single membership is $25 and a family membership which includes 2 adults and 2 children is $50. The membership includes a business card sized membership card, free admission to the museum for one year, 10% discount in our gift shop, and receipt of our newly developed quarterly newsletter. These memberships can be purchased at the Train Show this weekend or by stopping by the Railroad Museum anytime we are open.
