The main strip of downtown snoqualmie is lined with a few interesting shops and the Depot Museum sits directly across the street. Its nice to go when they allow train rides for the kids...its informative, giving a history, and its a pleasant addition to downtown.

A good, well-maintained small museum with quite a bit of historical meat on its bones. I have a soft spot for this place because my grandson enjoys it so much.
