Fantastic railroad museum, well off the beaten track, but more than worth the diversion. The most complete, well organized and friendliest museum of any type we've been to. Railroad buffs will be over the moon, but there's something for everyone, not to mention the real...More

Very interesting and easily accessible museum. Loaded with local railroad history and the ladies were very helpful and knowledgeable. There was even an area for children with a wooden train and track with which to play. The agriculture museum was right next door.
