Although the museum was closed on the day I was in town, I was able to view the trains from the parking lot. The display of vintage rail cars was excellent.

We take the kids to the Old colony & Fall River Railroad museum near Halloween . They put on a haunted train exhibit that makes for a great side trip when visiting Battleship cove or many of the October haunted factories
