We would have visited anyway but it was a pleasure to have an inside attraction (for the most part) when the smoke outside was so unpleasant. This small museum is an absolute treasure. It is so well presented not just with railway memorabilia but also...More

Really disappointed with the railway museum, we went to collect information and it was seriously lacking. Definitely not worth the $10 dollars each only spent 20 minuets inside

I don't know that I would call this a "must stop", unless you are a train geek, but it is well done and makes an enjoyable stop if you are looking to round out your day after other hiking or sightseeing. They have a great...More

Thank you for your glowing review. We are glad you found your visit informative and engaging. You are correct in that there is so much more to the history of the railway than just trains!

This rail museum has two huge indoor exhibits, stairs, and lots of smaller items including a train driving simulator. There is also an outdoor rolling stock yard.
