Railroad Merit Badge Adventure

Green Bay, WI

Realizing the importance of railroads in America, the Boy Scouts introduced the Railroading merit badge in 1952.  Railroads still play a vital role in our nation.  Today nearly 40 percent of all U.S. freight travels by train.  Trucks are a distant second at 28 percent.  In Wal-Mart stores 90 percent of the merchandise was on a train for some portion of its trip to the shelf.

With this in mind, the National Railroad Museum, a non-profit educational institution, is pleased to offer an annual Railroading Merit Badge workshop.  The 2017 program will be presented on Saturday, November 4th.

The Railroading Merit Badge Workshop is a one day program that affords Scouts the opportunity to earn the merit badge by participating in six different activity stations.  Each station deals with a different requirement (s) for the merit badge.  The National Railroad Museum offers a wealth of resources for this program, including our historic exhibits and a team of instructors from both the Museum staff and professional railroad sources.

Registration is currently open online at the Museum's website  click hereExternal Link.  The program is limited to 300 Scouts and 100 adults.

Cost for the full day event is $9.50 per person.
