A premier family attraction here is the National Railroad Museum (920/437-7623; nationalrrmuseum.org). One of the nation's largest rail museums, it houses everything from decorative train drumheads to a massive Big Boy steam locomotive -- and yes, you can take a train ride.
Start your visit with the 25-minute movie on steam locomotives. Then explore indoor and outdoor exhibits that include a futuristic Aerotrain from the 1950s.
Sports fans will enjoy a trip to Lambeau Field, which offers behind-the-scenes tours all year long, plus photo ops with a bronze statue of legendary coach Vince Lombardi (920/569-7500; lambeaufield.com).
