The railroad museum is free to see the trains but a donation is suggested to visit inside the old train station. Worth a stop if in the area. But, I would not go out of my way.

I have taken my grand children and some relatives here. The kids absolutely LOVE it. I also took some relatives from out of town because their boys love trains. This is a place for both young and old. Just a wonderful experience for everyone.

Make sure you go on one of the specialty days, and do not be afraid to ask questions. My whole family enjoys this museum and the passionate people who make the place possible. Love the stories and the cars that are featured.
