National Museum of Transportation Projects

Saint Louis County, MO

Client: Transport Museum Association
Year Completed: Ongoing

The Museum of Transportation owes its existence to a local group of railroad enthusiasts whose love of trains and railroad artifacts was boundless. In the early 1960’s these visionary’s began assembling a collection that extends well beyond locomotives, rail cars and railroad memorabilia.

Fox Architects’ relationship with the Museum began in 1998, supporting a Master Plan and Capital Campaign.   Since those initial assignments we have implemented multiple projects in support of the Master Plan.  These projects include the Earl C Lindburg Automobile Building, Upper Lot Comfort Station and Phase One of the Visitor Center.

In 2017 Fox and SWT Associates began design for a new Master Plan.   The new Master Plan recognizes the transition from St. Louis County Park to a private, not-for-profit National Museum of Transportation.    The 42 acre site will leverage one of the best collections of transportation artifacts in the US with improved facilities and visitor amenities.
