Welcome to Northern Ohio Railway Museum

     Thank you for your interest in Northern Ohio Railway Museum. The Museum is located at 5515 Buffham Road in Seville, Ohio (near Chippewa Lake). Here, on two miles of the historic Cleveland Southwestern Railway, the Museum is pursuing its mission to collect, preserve, restore, display and operate streetcars and other railway equipment for the education and entertainment of the public. Over forty streetcars, interurbans, rapid transit cars and other rolling stock have been collected. Most of this equipment is either operable or will be restored for operation on our three mile demonstration railroad. The Museum is open to the public for walking tours from 10 am to 4 pm Saturdays, mid-May through October. Admission is free, donations are requested. Visit our  Directions to the Museum  page for maps and directions and visit our  Museum Events  page for a full schedule.

Join us for a journey through Electric Railway History.

The Medina County Convention and Visitors Bureau is making their display window on the Square available to the Northern Ohio Railway Museum throughout the month of May. This years' display focuses on Northern Ohio Railway Museum's newly revitalized Educational Outreach Program centered around S.T.E.A.M. curricula. Utilizing artifacts and materials from the Museum the display illustrates the relationship of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics to the Museum's work in preservation, restoration and operations as well as our roles as Historians and Educators.
