We would have visited anyway but it was a pleasure to have an inside attraction (for the most part) when the smoke outside was so unpleasant. This small museum is an absolute treasure. It is so well presented not just with railway memorabilia but also...More

Really disappointed with the railway museum, we went to collect information and it was seriously lacking. Definitely not worth the $10 dollars each only spent 20 minuets inside

We visited here with our daughter, son-in-law and grandson, and we were all of the same opinion - that it's a beautifully presented collection and wonderfully informative, with 'hands on' aspects that children appreciate.

This rail museum has two huge indoor exhibits, stairs, and lots of smaller items including a train driving simulator. There is also an outdoor rolling stock yard.
