We had to stop in this town due to a car issue and thought we would kill some time at this museum. It turned out to be one of the best rail museums we have been to and we'll worth the $12 family fee!

The museum was decent, certainly for the price. I would not have driven an hour to get there but it was on the way to Hopewell Rocks so even better. There certainly were some great things to see there, don't want to knock it. Just...More
