We all could use a nice history lesson, especially if you live here on Long Island and aren't familiar with the old world ways that were a part of our parents & grandparents lives. Great place to take children or classroom school groups. Always nice to be humbled!!

We visited here about a year ago on a weekday. The museum was open for school groups. We were in Greenport because we like to ride trains.

It's a three part museum, with indoor and outdoor exhibits, model trains and real LIRR cars. I really enjoyed the yard with the old engines and caboose. I do hope the museum gets the funds it needs to make the vintage LIRR cars more accessible. Great for children and adults.

The railroad museum of Long Island brings guests to a small buut interesting collection of artifacts housed in an authentic railroad building. It is a fascinating look at transportation in the area; the railroad truly was the link that built Long Island. Well worth a stop.
