“Hmmm...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

Has potential, but overpriced. It could offer so much more. But knowing small budgets, I can understand to a point. Need to expand the horizons there. Try not to be charge a full museum price for a small walk through.

“photos”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

You kind of need to be into photography and trains to enjoy this museum. The photographs are excellent and the story interesting.

“Ansel Adams of Trains”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

This was well worth the time to see a bygone era documented. Link devoted much of his life photographing steam trains in Virginia. He used both still and moving cameras that created some amazing pictures.

“A fantastic highlight”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

I remember these photographs coming to England many years ago and never thought then that I would be standing in front of them inside a Loewy designed Art Deco railway station. This was one of the highlights of our trip. Fantastic

“Very cool pictures”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

The museum shares space with the Roanoke Visitors Center and that is what drew us in. It was a great bonus to see the wonderful pictures in the Link Museum. It also has some very cool train models including a huge working steam locomotive.
