Welcome to the Kruger Street Toy & Train Museum! Located in beautiful and historic Wheeling, West Virginia; we are truly one unique place! Come and relive your childhood, bring back good memories, and share them with your family, friends, or tour group – this will be a visit that you won’t soon forget!

Our exhibits of toys and trains are from every generation and are sure to bring a smile to your face! Our operating train layouts are interactive and can be enjoyed by everyone of any age! We offer unique local heritage items throughout the museum to showcase the part played by the Ohio Valley in the economical and transportation development of the United States!

And then there are the toys! You’ll see thousands of toys of all types and for all ages; from dolls and dollhouses, to toy soldiers and playsets, to trains, planes, and ships, to Western toys, space toys, cartoon characters, ride-on toys, and just about anything else you can think of to bring back those treasured memories from your childhood!

We are the IDEAL destination for your school group (check out our educational programs on our “Visit the Museum” page – they are tailor-made for multiple age groups and lesson plans), church, or youth group!

The Kruger Street Toy & Train Museum is just a stone’s throw from the Historic National Road, which was recently designated as an All American Byway! A local grass-roots organization, the National Road Alliance of West Virginia, is trying to give that classic highway its due! In fact, they have placed a National Road historical marker here on the museum property.

The Kruger Street Toy & Train Museum is a member of the Elm Grove Business Association, The Wheeling Area Chamber of Commerce, the Wheeling Convention & Visitors Bureau, and the Greater Pittsburgh Convention & Visitors Bureau!
