There was a small, but nice collection of railroad cars and engines. The working turntable is a highlight. The train ride is very short, but includes two rides on the turntable. The guided tour of the two business cars was excellent. If you like trains,...More

Mostly a self-guided tour with random opportunities for guides to present more information and explanation. The handcart activity is fun. Easy museum to visit with kids.

A small, but interesting piece of history. It could have been better. All the rail cars were locked so you could only go in as part of the docent led tours. The exhibits were all outdoors, so it's an early morning or Spring/Fall activity. Finally,...More
