If you're looking for something to do on a winter evening around christmas time the railway and forestry museum is a great place to spend the evening, with mini train rides around a very festively decorated grounds and fire pits to keep warm.

I love going here but, it is pretty expensive to visit so I have not been there in years. I love the antique trains, the festive events they have and the warm atmosphere. Great volunteers who truly love their jobs.

A year round attraction with equipment to climb in, on & over, buildings to explore and a mini rail train to ride around the park. A great place to reminisce about the old days.

Inside they have a booklet for a self-guided tour. They are helpful to make sure you don't miss anything. They... More

It is a nice departure for those that Love Trains, Train-cars, and historic coaches. What is so sad is that they've been left to the elements.

The employees are always welcoming... More
