  • Beautiful restored building however there's not much to look at as far as old pictures and such. There are very few displays. My little nieces really enjoyed it though because they have a lot of kid.....  more

  • The former station was getting rundown, when a local effort lead to a complete restoration. The end result is beautiful and well worth a visit. The current museum lacks focus and is strangely...

  • This well preserved historic rail station is a great place to tour to learn about the early railroad days.

  • Came during "dino days" where they had a T-Rex skeleton in display. They also had a triceratops skeleton an other smaller exhibits. Go upstairs for some history on trains. The staff are very friendly, some were almost too talkative/imposing, but overall great experience!
  • We enjoyed the history of the railroad and The Harvey House. Beautiful building!
  • This was the first time we have been here. We came just for the Sue T-Rex experience. We were very surprised how little of an experience you received for how much it cost. There was only 2 rooms. The rest of the building, which employees kept repeating "There is more upstairs" was about trains. It was very odd! I have seen amazing exhibits that take an hour or more to go through that cost just as much. Afterwards we went to the Zoo for more dinosaurs and had a better experience.
  • Went to the dinosaurs exhibit. Very interesting!
  • Beautiful bldg both in and out. Did the Dino exhibit. Great display.
