All Aboard

Experience the wonders of the rails when you explore All Aboard, Discovery World’s new model railroading exhibit!

Whether you’re a full-blown train enthusiast or enamored by the marvels of miniature worlds, your family won’t want to miss this replica of mid-20th century Milwaukee equipped with a dynamic landscape including local buildings such as the historic Everett Street Depot, Pabst Brewery, Usinger’s Factory, and much more.

Explore the science behind the trains and learn why trains and railways have been a ‘model’ of innovation for hundreds of years, leading to advances in industry, agriculture, and transportation. Powered by steam, diesel fuel, or electricity, trains represent one of the most important ways that people and goods travel.

Today, trains and railways embody technological advancements from around the globe. From smart sensors and automated inspection equipment to computer programs that maximize fuel use, trains continue to carry us into the future.

The model railroad layout featured in All Aboard was made possible through the generosity of Richard (Dick) Grigg and his family. Dick’s family has donated this layout as a memorial to Dick, for the entire community to share in his passion and enthusiasm.

Exhibit supported in partnership by Walthers.
