There were many placards to read and rail cars that unfortunately were locked. It was still interesting but would have been nice to have it open. A very large jackalope statue was out front which has an interesting come hither look. Grabbed some nice photo's.
The rail cars weren't open on the day we visited because of bad weather. But we still had a marvelous time. Plenty to see in the restored station from old railroad tools, to a great model train set up that the guides ran for us....More

It is in a nice town there are local restaurants, it is free, it is a museum so no train rides, but you can look at vintage railroad cars. It is very interesting, I grew up with my father being a Telegraph operator for the DRGRR in Colorado. I would say this is one of the best railroad museums I have been too and let me tell you I have been to many. I would do it again. I had so much fun the museum is great!
