“Livingston Montana NP RR Depot Center Museum”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

Livingston Depot Center Museum is the "crown jewel" of Livingston's historic district -- a 100-year-old depot built by the Northern Pacific Railway to greet the thousands of visitors who once came this way to visit Yellowstone National Park. The museum is open during the summer months and is “free” with very interesting Northern Pacific (NP) Railway history in Montana – “Lots of exhibits and very Educational”. There is a very interesting “detailed” model train display in the basement next to the Depot building. Grab a bit to eat and/or a cup of coffee across the street at Gil’s Goods (good food and wine), the atmosphere is “similar to a European style cafe, with the heart of Montana”. The service is casual, friendly, and detailed. Then check-out the nearby historic Murray Hotel & bar.

Great little museum! Really liked that it was compact and well rounded. The display on train snow plows was my favorite.

“Catch The Train”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

Excellent displays here and the building has also been restored quite nicely, especially the mosaic panels. The exterior is really quite beautiful with the pillars and fencing. You get the feeling of what it must have been like to catch a passenger train and travel to Yellowstone here. A must see!

“Nice Museum”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

My son really enjoyed this. Lots of exhibits and very educational. It was clean and easy to see all exhibits. So nice that it is free. The movie exhibit upstairs was not worth the walk.
