Tour the Victorian era museum. Old station charm. Little gift shop. A running model train area is very detailed. And you can look inside a dining car. And also, there is a train ride.

The museum is well worth visiting. It is small but has many interesting pieces. The Rockwell collection is very nice. I really enjoyed the visit. It is very manageable to see in an hour so it is a nice stop.

My first visit to this museum was very satisfactory! The historic bank building is a perfect setting for the impressive collection of artwork. I would definitely make a return trip.

Downstairs are assorted originals from famous and not-so-famous artists, sculptors and photographers. All is nicely presented. This...More
