Budget about 15 or 20 minutes to see all you need to see here. The building and it's historic significance make it worth a quick stop.

This little museum was worth a visit. It wasn't filled to the gills with artifacts but what it did have was very interesting. The people there are quite knowledgeable about the Railroad Station and eagerly answered questions and were very informative about the area.
