The Mid-Continent Railway Museum is a heritage railway in North Freedom, Wisconsin.

Three steam locomotives are currently under restoration to federal guidelines. The museum has 14 steam and 6 diesel locomotives, and over 100 other pieces of rolling stock (see the thumbnails on the website). The Museum has the largest collection of wooden passenger cars in the United States as well as six of only seven surviving wooden boxcars built by Mather Stock Car Company.

Excursions travel 4½ miles (7.2 km) one-way, passing through the former mining town of La Rue. The trip takes about one hour. Trains run daily from Mid-May to Labor Day.
