The movie about Bill Clinton’s life was very moving. This is a great place in a great town. Everyone was very helpful and the historical railroad items were very interesting.

Exhibits on the history of Hope, railroad industry, and President Clinton. Excellent stop on the way to visit President Clinton's boyhood home, which is a short walk down the street. Easily visited in less than one hour.

I had a great time visiting this museum/visitor center. The history of small towns is a major interest of mine so I enjoyed all the early 1900's images and text. And it is in the Train Station with trains passing every few hours. Amtrak stop.
