The St. Louis County Depot is a landmark cornerstone of arts and cultural organizations that entertains, educates, inspires, and provides space for a diverse group of guests. The St Louis County Depot provides new, engaging experiences; is a destination and a community center; and fosters community through a diversity of education and entertainment that enhances the quality of life for visitors.
The St. Louis County Depot requires masks and curiosity for entry.
Not a lot of attractions can say that, but with seven organizations under one roof, it’s a pretty sure thing.

No, unless you have a service animal (which doesn’t really qualify as a pet).
Good question! Two organizations at the Depot currently offer free admission and are generally unstaffed exhibits: The Duluth Art Institute and The St. Louis County Historical Society.
The Duluth Playhouse and Underground Theater offer shows, camps, and workshops, and tickets can be purchased here.
The North Shore Scenic Railroad has train rides and special events for sale, and tickets can be purchased here.
The Lake Superior Railroad Museum requires admission for its many historic exhibits and attractions. Tickets can be purchased along with train tickets here or at the time of your visit.
So basically three floors of the Depot are FREE to experience…
$5 donations (per person) suggested and very much appreciated.
No. But the Train Museum is indeed in the Depot, as are several other tenant organizations. The Depot is actually owned and operated by St. Louis County, as we support community organizations that engage our public in recreational, educational, and cultural activities, and we think the Depot is the perfect hub to make it happen!
