Lots of interesting artifacts.

Museums displays of railroad history of the area. Many unique items. Two story display is not overwhelming but is very interesting. Ramp allows access. Very helpful volunteers.

Must-see for history buffs and rail fans
May 2020
This small museum about railroading in West Virginia is very informative with a very detailed exhibit with many artifacts on display. The exhibits changes every year, so you should come back even if you have been before. This is a must-see for rail fans and history nerds. Anyone else will be able to learn something new. Includes a small gift shop. Admission is a good deal at just $5 per person, but double-check their hours before you visit because they are usually only open Spring-Fall. Conveniently located in downtown Elkins near plenty of shops and restaurants.

An OK place
Aug 2019
This is a rather small museum with a few exhibits. I'm not sure of the cost, as we got in free with a tour, but I would not pay a lot to visit. There were a few interesting things to see, but we must have been in and out within 30 minutes or so.

Nice little museum. Interesting display. Very informative. Great history about the railroad. Everyone should visit before or after riding the train.

Lots of history about Trains
Jun 2018 • Family
Really enjoyed my experience here, the displays that the museum has a lot of information on the history of the railroad and trained. They have an area for kids to play with toy trains which keeps them active. I enjoyed reading about all the information. Be sure to check out the Discovery Center on the first floor of the Darden Mill where both are located. It does have a fee for entrance.

Not fancy or elaborate, but interesting

Small, local museum depicting early railroad history in West Virginia - focus is on early logging railroads. Not a lot to see, NOT a trainride, no steam engines on site, but good, local depiction of life during the logging era. Only $5 pp, but it helps support and grow the museum.
