  • Good for a quick stop with small kids who love trains. Kept our 2.5 year old busy for about a half an hour. Entrance via donation. Cool caboose for kids to check out. Can't really touch many model tra...  more »

  • Fantastic little museum with interesting trinkets and a well-informed curator. I've never used a telegraph before, so the interactive one they had to try was so cool. Also, they have a retired and restored caboose that you can get inside and tour. The video inside the caboose did a great job covering the history of the railroad and was well edited to be thorough, yet concise. Overall, this was a quaint short stop that captured the Chatham spirit.
  • Fantastic little treat! My son (6) had a blast here! We stayed about 30 minutes and could easily have stayed longer. Don't forget to drop some $$$ in the donation bin. It's rare to find places that don't charge admission!
  • Lots of fun for kids. Kids 3 to 13 all enjoyed it. The 3 year old was happy to play in the communication room and caboose for almost an hour and left kicking and screaming. Will definitely be back again
  • Nice to see history being perserved. Kids like to climb on the caboose.
  • Nice little museum with a volonteer guide. The guide was very knowledgeable and welcoming.
