Writing review after a long time so details not coming back to me. Just remember it was a nice place to go to especially if it's not beach weather and enjoyed their displays. Doesn't take a long time to see everything, we spent about an hour at most, but it was something to do.

RR museum is a great activity to do with the kids. Interactive station and a real caboose to walk through/climb on outside.

Wonderful visit! Nicely maintained station and railroad artifacts. Well crafted models and fascinating railway memorabilia. Very cool to see the interior of caboose! Friendly and knowledgeable volunteer greeted the visitors. Definitely a must see for young and old alike!

This is a small museum set inside the original station. It has some very interesting items for display and being able to go inside the caboose was very interesting. You won't spend too much time here but it is worth the stop if you like this sort of thing.

Small, quaint piece of history. My husband is a train enthusiast and we both love history. So interesting to look back in time.

This museum is in the old victorian style railroad depot built in 1887. The rail service lasted only fifty years but it was a glorious fifty years. The exhibits include a Western Union office with the old telegraph equipment and a restored caboose.
