The train museum is set up to imitate what a train station would have looked like during Lincolns visit (it is not exact, but they did a great job). The people are friendly and it is a nice quick family stop.

Great for history buffs, teens and adults. Gives you great details about the train President Lincoln 'rode home' in. I love the updates you have made to include the 9-11 history. Great job!
