Marshall Steam Museum

The Marshall Steam Museum is an opportunity to learn about the beginnings of the automotive age. A collection of historic automobiles and trains enables visitors to compare modern life with the early 1900s and witness the transformation of technology. The Auburn Heights mansion is open for private tours during part of the year, and is a fine example of period Victorian architecture. Younger groups can enjoy automobile- and train-themed story time, while older learners will enjoy exploring historical developments in engineering and discovering the past through the many objects. Scout badge opportunities are available at the museum.
