Steamin' Days

The best way to experience Auburn Heights and the Marshall Steam Museum is to attend a monthly Steamin’ Day! Climb into an antique automobile, board one of our trains, and experience what it was like to travel at the turn of the 20th century. Tour the magnificent 1897 mansion that was home to three generations of the Marshall family. You’ll find something for everyone, age 2 to 92! Join us on the first Sundays of every month from June through November, 12:30 – 4:30 pm. Included with All Admission Options:
 • Fresh steam-popped popcorn from our vintage popper
 • Entry to the newly renovated Marshall Steam Museum, featuring the world’s largest operating collection of Stanley steam cars plus a 1930s working Lionel electric trains display, steam engine display, exhibits, and gift shop
 • Kids activities/crafts
 • Firing Up Demonstration (at 1:30 pm) to see how we set a steam car in motion
