“What a hidden gem!”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

Granddaughters explore this with all the gusto a fiesty four year old and demure nine year old can muster.

One's senses are gently guided to the past in this work of artful history.

Adore this!

Reviewed July 23, 2012

It was a small museum good for children. Enough to keep them interested but not become bored. Good railroad display.
