We really enjoyed going through all of the old trains and looking about the old time store displays. We also took the train ride and loved every minute.

We have visited dozens of times and it's always fun to see these historic trains again. It's good for all ages and especially engaging for train enthusiasts. A favorite feature also includes the vintage-style shop windows around the perimeter.

There is a lot just down the street from the museum/pretty much connected to the depot museum building. There is also on-street parking but the lot is your best option. Enjoy!
