They have an amazing collection of railroad memorabilia. The lady that works there has a tremendous amount of knowledge about everything there and the history of the city built by a railroad.

This is a real museum, with real artifacts and stories. Not an amusement park or anything exaggerated to make entertainment. If you're really interested in the railroads and the people who ran them, this is the place for you.

If you're in the area downtown Hinton is worth the trip. The Railroad Museum is a must stop for those with an interest in old time railroading. It's free but do leave a donation.

The railroad museum opened our eyes to what life was like when the town was a hub and hopping. Really brought home what happens in an area with one big employer when that employer leaves.
