Visited while waiting to reboard the New River Train Excursion. Lots of historical information to digest and not enough time that day. The museum volunteers were very friendly and informative, especially the older gentlemen who used to operate the telegraph and teletype systems.

Went to Hinton during Railroad Days. Stopped in the Museum and was pleasantly surprised with the details and information. Better then the crafters at the street fair.

You can easily spend an hour or longer in this charming little place, and they take donations but do not charge any fees!

We didn't know why we were driving to Hinton, we just thought we should and we found this little railroad museum and found it quite delightful. There was an sweet older lady who greeted us and gave us a bit of information and then we browsed the pictures and wood carvings showing the history of the region's railroad. We are... More
