My grandson and I both loved this museum and found it to be really interesting. Lots of good information, and the simulated train ride was great. Lots of trains and train related items as well as lots of Americana.

Discovered this museum when we ate across the street and wandered in just to have a look. The folks in the museum couldn't have been nicer. We spent quite some time asking questions and listening to the history of the station. A hidden jewel in the midst of the tourist attractions.

The enthusiasm of the docent made this museum trip. There really isn't a lot to see, but it is free, and the history alone makes it worth the trip. Our docent was very knowledgeable and eager.

Lots of neat collectables and interesting facts about Lincolns funeral train. Kids will like the model trains and the "train ride". Educational for sure.

The person working was very informative and vey nice. It is very small but had nice information. It was interesting to be where Lincoln arrived to give his famous speech. We stopped here on our way to downtown.
