The Chatham Ma RR Museum is one of the few original stations still in it's original location. It ha a marvelous collection of RR memorabilia and Station Masters office with the telegraph keys and old phones used throughout it's history.

don't go out of your way to visit. Old caboose to go into. The main building is an old train station house - kind of interesting. Decent collection of old railway-type memorabilia.

Took our 4yr, 2yr, 1month old after the Fish Pier this year. Great small space for everything trains. Model, books, mock old style train office, memorabilia, and an old out of service caboose to explore out back.

It is in an old train station. There is a caboose on the property that can be toured. There is a lot of memorabilia inside. It is small and quick. My grandson is into trains so it was a must for him. We spend at least an hour going in and out. It is a free attraction but you can... More

This was a nice free stop for us. It's very small and can be done quickly or you can take your time. My kids enjoyed playing with the morse code and trying to guess letters. The caboose is nice to visit too.

This place is great...and FREE. Very small but a lot of things packed in there. Kids loved it. I wish I had more time to look at all of the exhibits. There is an old caboose that that kids can go in. Also right across the street from a playground which is convenient to entertain little ones.

Small yet interesting museum containing railroad models and history. The kids loved it and especially going on the old caboose. The volunteer there was helpful in answering questions and great with the kids. A free attraction however donations are encouraged to maintain it.

This museum is quite small but has a wonderful character about it. We went into the Caboose outside and met a volunteer renvating the windows. The volunteers are obviously very proud of the museum and were friendly and helpful. There was no admission charge, donations are requested. A good museum to visit.
