This is a small museum in Downtown Plano easily accessible from the Downtown Plano DART Station which also has plenty of parking. I've been there several time. The curator is excellent. Worth a visit to see some of Plano's history.

Visited with friends on a Saturday afternoon. There were two docents there who greeted us and toured us through the displays and the railroad car. Very interesting and informative.

Basically located in the park, adjacent to the DART line, this is a great little museum. You can tour an old trolley outside and play with some electrical gadgets inside. I liked it a whole lot. Great place to learn about local history.
