Welcome to the Empire State Railway Museum!
Located in the heart of the beautiful Catskill Mountains of upstate New York State, the Empire State Railway Museum is dedicated to preserving the historic Ulster & Delaware Railroad and its classic 1899 Phoenicia Junction railroad station as tourist attractions for our area. Our mission includes keeping the history of the area railroads alive along while telling the story of the people and towns they served throughout the Catskills and the Hudson Valley region. Enjoy our continuously changing exhibits of local history inside our beautifully restored station. ESRM is open to the public weekends and holidays from Memorial Day through October.
