Hard to review a museum that wasn't open on a weekday in a resort town. Outside is an old snow plow?

Did not have a lot that interested the children aged 14. Only spent a short time there. Really not too much to see. A couple of old train cars, the engine with a snow plow on it and the turntstile.
