Found this on the internet, was looking for a authentic old time railroad experience for my husband who has always wanted to do this type of thing! We added this as the starter activity to our family vacation and it was the perfect way to begin, it is easy to find, even though it is off the beaten path. thank goodness for GP's now a days! Museum is not large by any means, but just right for a afternoon activity. It is located in the peaceful town of New Haven, KY. You have an outdoor walking museum with engines and old train cars, along with and indoor museum, small but very nice, it is free to walk through, it is located in a old depot, which houses a gift shop and ticket area to go on the train ride throughout the country side. Our family participated in the Murder Mystery package. the meal started out in the near by B& B that also houses a local bar, (Beautiful old bar, original wood work, it is like taking a short trip back in time) They also let us go up stairs and look at the open B & B room, all decorated in antique bedroom sets and furniture. NO AC, so they tell you from the get go you are TRULY experiencing how it would of been to stay here years ago,, before boarding the train to go somewhere! The down stairs areas was Air conditioned and set up for meals and programs! we stared out being served a wonderful french onion soup, along with a beautiful salad W/ house dressing that was out of this world. The performers began to set the stage for the Murder & mystery behind it while we were eating our meal. Some of the actors even served us while we were eating our meal. You had a choice of Chicken or Salmon for the main course, wonderful as well with rice or mash potatoes.Dessert was of course a very decadent Carmel filled brownie with more caramel and real homemade whip cream and nuts and cherries to top it off! The meal started at 5:30 p.m. and then around 7 p.m. they asked you to boarded the train for the mystery to be unfolded and solved. this took around 2 hours. we stopped in Boston, Ky. for 15 minutes for us to get off the train, talk about WHO did it, etc. we then traveled back to New Haven and the suspect was slowly reviled to us. we also were given and opportunity to write down "MEANS, MOTIVE, OPPORTUNITY and who we think actually did it. Prizes where given to those that got the correct person in the end. They were able to go and pick certain things out of the gift shop.
After all was relieved we were given the opportunity to take pictures with the cast and crew of the production. Was a very fun time, they also offer a roaring 50's and train robbery event along with other e=seasonal activities! Was a great chose for our family and totally enjoyed by my husband who we actually did it for! Train is not remodeled and is in a little ruff shape but that just adds to the original~ness of it. It was $65.00 per -person to do this, which was very reasonable for all that it included! They even had a person come around and punch your ticket liek they would of done in the "GOOD OLD DAYS" Good choice for the start of our vacation!
