This was a great way to spend a couple of hours on a rainy day. Some interesting history of the area and also the history of the railroads through the mid west region. The miniature railroad display in the second building was probably the best...More

Very nice museum. Informative, interesting history of the area and trains. Nice displays. Nice gift shop. My husband loved the massive model train set up in the second floor of the museum.

The museum is great. The store is limited and many times imported from China. Store staff not very knowledgable of surrounding area or current (depot) events. Staff not outgoing (no pleases or thank you's).

I was expecting to see more railroad relics, but the majority of the museum was handcrafted models and printouts.

This is probably an excellent museum for railroad enthusiast, but I am not one of them. If you are, be sure to visit this museum. If not, don't waste your time and money.

One is struck by the simple beauty of the place the second you walk in. The clock and original mail boxes and the worn shiny floors is an instant return to another era when the RRs ruled the West. Free parking is plentiful and the...More
