  • Sweet little volinteer-run museum. Nice roadside attraction stop.
  • Small museum, but it does have interesting things. If you are ever by it or just want to go do something go check it out. Would be 5 star but my sister got biten from a black ant outside : /
  • Great memories, wonderful hosts.
  • Literally this is the middle of nowhere and just like that a train depot and museum pop out of the sand! It was interesting seeing the Harvey House (now the museum) and the depot.
  • Just keep driving past this. Not worth a stop. Not even a restroom stop.
