For nearly 200 years railroads have been the sinews of American industry, transporting prodigious amounts of freight from coast to coast and border to border. Also, until the middle of the 20th century, trains were a mainstay for transporting passengers long distances in style and comfort. This small museum, with a myriad of railroading artifacts gives visitors a picture of American railroading. If you have an interest in the history of American transportation is it not to be missed.

Went to see the museum but it was closed. Only open till labor day. However, we were still able to see some sights. The outside of the building was cool to see. Also could see the train and cars as well. Nice little place to stop and take a break.

We live here in Conneaut and every year we make our way to the railroad museum. It started when our youngest son was one. He was so into Thomas the Train. Every year we get a picture of him by the electric model trains. He loves going onto the engine amd caboose. The volunteers that work there are so nice and helpfull. There's a lot of historical things in there including a president's train pass. I won't tell who. You'll just have to find out for yourself.

This is one of those places that when you are on a road trip you love to see but hate that your time is limited. We were there at least an hour and if time was of no consequence it really deserved at least 3 of you really wanted to get a grasp of their exhibits...Do what you can but do your best to see this museum if in Conneaut.

Full of pictures and artificats, some hands on, some in display cases, there is something to look at in nearly every inch of the old train station. Nickel Plate Road 2-8-4 No.755 sits proud waiting for you check it out, climb the stairs and let your child peek into a lost world of running a steam engine, or climb up on front for a photo opportunity.

Great place to take the kids during the summer. I go every year and still enjoy walking through the trains.

This place is nice to visit and isn't large. All the children in Conneaut come here for their field trips when they are in elementary school. When you are inside and a train goes by it's such a nostalgic feeling. The ticket booth is set up like before. There are lots of things to see inside related to the railroad and the city. All of the railroad communities should preserve their old depots and convert into little museums just like this one.
