We have visited the museum several times. They have special displays throughout the year. Beautiful at Christmas time with the tree inside. A good place to visit on a hot day or a cold, snowy day.

We visited before Christmas and the decorated tree in the lobby was amazingly beautiful. The passenger trains will be a hit with the grandkids when I take them. I was with a tour group and everyone was impressed.

Cool place to see the old travel trail cars they used in the early days of the railroad. The history of the museum is amazing and the architecture is awsome!

We visited on a very cold December day. Santa was there with Christmas concerts all day. It was a nice experience. $11 was a little steep for the museums/exhibits but it was a nice adventure.

I was walking around and found interested the way the museum it's about. Is very interesting to learn story and walk around the museum. I was alone visiting the museum and you can appreciate the art and the architecture more closely. I would probably visit...More

Up stairs is the old train station. There are statues of people from days gone by. When you walk up to one, it starts to talk. That is kind of fun. They also have an old fashioned soda fountain up stairs. Down stairs there are...More
