Lake Superior Railroad Museum
The Lake Superior Railroad Museum (reporting mark LSRX) is a railroad museum located in Duluth, Minnesota.

The museum has seven steam, 14 diesel, and two electric locomotives; and more than 40 other pieces of rolling stock. The collection includes the William Crooks, which became the first locomotive to operate in the state of Minnesota in 1861, and Duluth, Missabe and Iron Range Railway Number 227, a 2-8-8-4 "Yellowstone" locomotive that was among the largest steam engines to operate.

The museum operates a heritage railroad called the North Shore Scenic Railroad.

The museum is housed in the former Duluth Union Depot, now the Saint Louis County Heritage and Arts Center's Historic Union Depot. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the depot also houses the Duluth Art Institute, Duluth Playhouse, the Duluth-Superior Symphony Orchestra, and the Saint Louis County Historical Society.
