We stumbled upon this museum by chance, and we enjoyed the museum (former train station) immensely. A charming small museum indeed!

Located in the railroad station, this museum, though small, had very delightful exhibits, as well as a children's area for creating art that could be posted on a wall.

It is a small museum, just 5-6 rooms. Nice art. A small art room for kids and adults to make their own art project. What is important - it is downtown of a very cozy and friendly town with lots of nice art shops and cafe.

Big enough to be worth the experience, small enough so you can relax and take it all in. This former train station displays art around one or two themes. The exhibits are first rate, and if you happen to be in town when they do the domino tumble.......ya gotta go. Admission is free the first Friday of the week at... More

We enjoyed our recent visit. The museum rotates exhibits every few months and it is worth stopping by if you're in the area. We liked recent relief paintings by a nyc artist and atmospheric pastels paintings of what appeared to be 30's era trains. The kids activity area was nice. Check reciprocal memberships with other museums for a potential discount.

The space is a charming old train station, and renovations have made it a top notch museum space. There's a great education room with children's activities. Excellent eateries steps away make this a complete outing. If you... More

This museum does a great job presenting interesting shows with a wide range of subjects and mediums. We usually stop by when we were in the area and have seen a great variety of presentations. They do what they do very well. No, they are not a world class museum and that's what makes it so special. We were particularly... More
