They have a museum of the area, local writers and train history. Lots of items from the area and good information. Good place to take kids for local interest if coming from out of town.

This is an active train location. There is interesting history of the station as well as a museum. There is also the original baggage scale in the lobby.

Huge Amtrak stop and Gift Shop with a quaint museum. Travel back in time and view pieces and photos of Early Whitefish. Station is clean and well kept. Just to the SE is a park with benches and tables just ready for a picnic.

This is a great old depot; very well-maintained - a traditional & classic style. I went inside, too and took lots of photos of both the inside and the outside.

We took a walk around downtown and stopped by the picturesque historic depot built in the Tudor style (1927, National Register of Historic Places). It has been carefully maintained and restored, and still welcomes visitors arriving by rail to this day. Inside there is a...More

Went by just to see what it was and the building itself is beautifully preserved and has an information center inside. It is worth a stop by. Also has a large stuffed Mountain Goat in a glass case if you want a close up look...More

This place is a local museum as a train station as well. We saw a 100 years old floor weight. Super cool! The museum has simple pieces to demonstrate the local history.
