History Museum Museum
Railway enthusiasts should not miss West Coast Railway Heritage Park, a museum with the second-largest collection of train memorabilia and artifacts. Dedicated to collecting, preserving, and displaying historical railway parts, the institution engages visitors of all ages. Younger members of the family can let their imaginations run wild in the large play area upstairs, as well as on a mini rail located outside. Pay special attention to the rare Royal Hudson #2860 steam locomotive, acquired in 2006.
