Enjoyed the visit. I learned a lot about history of the area. Good way to spend a couple of hours. I particularly liked the information about the ship explosion.

Go during train fest. Recently fully remodeled and beautiful! Upstairs train models are the coolest stuff! The rest is local history and a nice to see if you want to learn about the disaster and recover of this little town. Very cheap!
