Midland Railway Museum and the Oklahoma Railroad Museum have announced that they will close their doors at the end of the year.
“We have been very fortunate to work with our local partners to bring these wonderful attractions to the Oklahoma and Midland regions and they have made the best use of the time we have left to create these wonderful and unique experiences for our fans,” said Dan DeBartolo, executive director of the Midland and Oklahoma Railroad Museums.
“It is important to note that we have not yet closed our doors to the public, and our staff will continue to provide support to our fans in the months ahead.
Midland and the other two museums are located in downtown Oklahoma City.
Both museums are part of the National Railroad Museum in Washington, D.C. and offer unique tours and educational programs.
The Oklahoma Railroad and Midlands Museum are operated by the Oklahoma City Metropolitan Library System.
In October 2017, the Midlands and Oklahoma Railways, two of the largest railroad museums in the country, were bought by the National Railway Museum in New York City.
“The Midlanders have done a great job with our fans. “
I am very excited to have the Midlanders and the Railroad Museum back together again,” said George Schlosser, president of the Oklahoma Railway Museum.
“The Midlanders have done a great job with our fans.
Their fan base has grown exponentially.
I have no doubt that our fans will be coming back.”
