Train Station Exhibit

locomotive train at blacksburg children's museum

Watch as the train zooms around the track in our new Train Station! Conduct our replica train engine and learn cool new facts about not one, but two train stations in Blacksburg’s history. See how these giant locomotives were used to transport people, animals, and supplies across long distances before today’s cars and airplanes.

A slideshow of pictures and interesting facts makes this exhibit a great place to practice reading skills and a fun look into the past of Blacksburg. Shadow boxes full of actual artifacts and replica 1940’s train engines. As children interact with the train engine and learn about Blacksburg’s history, they will also be able to use math skills to buy and sell train tickets.

Our Pricing Perspective

Team communication is at the heart of every business. It’s the thing that connects your entire organization and has the biggest impact on your culture and productivity.

For decades, team communication software has been a race to the bottom with clunky and cheap solutions that offer far more frustration than value. We want to change that by offering you a product that just works. And we want it to be a great value for your entire organization – with a growing lineup of new features, helpful on-boarding, and responsive support.

We believe Slack is an investment in your team and culture. So we set our pricing at a level that allows us to invest in building a solid product, and more importantly, a great experience for you as our customers.
