An excellent railroad museum! Outside are examples of local railroad engines, cabooses, and service vehicles (BNSF and Union Pacific). You can climb on them a little bit and look inside some of them.
Inside are several rooms full of local history: maps, tools, equipment, photographs, and memorabilia from days gone past. And the largest collection of "date nails" I have ever seen (having seen precisely one other collection in Alaska...) -- thousands from all around the country. Free admission, but you can leave a donation or buy something from the gift shop to help them along.
Back outside, you've also got the Barstow Harvey House and station, and several lines of active passenger and freight track. A rather remarkable confluence of railroading experience is available on this spot!
