  • The train museum is free to the public. But accept donations. A ride on the train is $10 and lasts around 30 minutes. I had an enjoyable time. The staff were both helpful and knowledgeable.
  • There is so much to see! So much education & history represented here. The actual trains are under cover so you get a first hand experience. There are even some trains you can walk thru & they are set up just like they were originally.
