  • This is one of those great little museums run by enthusiastic locals. It deserves to survive so, even though it's free, make a donation. Love the garden railway depicting the old steam railway that headed north from Cobourg over Rice Lake.
  • It's a great place to visit if you're interested in the history of old Cobourg and its railway. For all ages and free!
