I stopped here after walking around downtown Douglas - it’s just over the railroad tracks. The best way to describe this place is a hybrid museum/tourist information center. I was the only visitor at the time. I enjoyed looking around at all of the old...More

This was the best variety of train cars on display I've ever seen. Like you just stepped back in time. Not fancied up but still in original shape. Loved it. Watch out for the jackalope.

Some full size static displays which you can go on and walk through. Also great displays inside the museum. The tour guide was very pleasant to deal with and quite knowledgable.

Totally worth the stop. Great Jackalope photo ops - inside and outside the museum- and the train cars are SO cool! Our three year old loved exploring the different train cars and we did too!

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.

Just down the road from the Pioneer Museum this is a collection of various locos and carriages, some of which are open to view inside. The sleeper carriage and dining cars were fascinating, whilst the size of the loco is amazing - the wheels alone...More
