With the additional of the multi-tiered, multi-tracked (8 different) tracks display from Lionel the museum has gone from very good to top-flight. It is enjoyable for all ages with some interactive opportunities that make it great for children.

Get to the Riverhead site when it opens @ 10am and view that site. By a little after 11 take the LIRR to Greenport to... More

Locaction, location, location. Greenport is nice little village on the North Fork of Long Island and the Railroad Museum is located at the end of the line of the Long Island Railroad. The building is the original train station. The miniature train on private property away from the the actual museum is very special and different from anywhere else. There... More

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. An advance ordering of lunch at the Sterlington Deli and an invitation from the historical society for us to see the museum made it happen. Dioramas, memorabelia, dispalys of equipment, and historical pictures... More

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.

What's not to like about a Museum? This should be one of your travel stop while you are visiting Greenport.
