Local Activities

Choo Choo Barn



So you rolled into town for the rehearsal dinner but you’re not IN the wedding, which means you have some time to kill before the bride walks down the aisle. The kids are a little bonkers from being stuck in a hotel room and you need a change of scenery.


Enter the Choo Choo Barn! With 22 operating trains and over 150 hand-built miniature figures, vehicles and scenes, this 1,700 square foot train display will amaze all ages. See a fire engine race to the rescue to put out the fire at a burning house – with real water! Watch the Amish men build a barn – all in detailed miniature! Much more than “just trains”, this ever-changing layout is a work of art.


We are right along Route 741 in Strasburg, so you’ll have plenty of time to get back to the hotel for a nap before your big night out!

The Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania



All aboard for your truly historic wedding at the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania. The Museum’s impressive Rolling Stock Hall, which is home to a world-class collection of trains, provides a visually stunning and unquestionably unique venue for your special day.


In a convenient location amid scenic Lancaster County farmland, the Museum also is a great choice as a setting for your engagement photos, wedding shower, rehearsal dinner or wedding reception.


The Museum staff will work with you and/or your wedding planner to keep everything on track, providing referrals as requested for every possible amenity, including entertainment, caterers, florists, lodging and area guest activities. There are over 200 free individual parking spaces for your guests. Guided tours through the locomotives and cars of railroad history also may be arranged to delight your guests.
