We saw this railroad museum after visiting the Frontier Trail Museum.. Its next door and not very well marked. We didn't plan the visit, but glad we did. We were the only ones there and got a private tour and enjoyed learning a little RailRoad history and see their great displays.They have a lot more displays then we expected. People... 更多
My boyfriend and I stopped here after visiting the national frontier trails museum. We liked the depot way better! It's free but donations are encouraged and welcome. There's a 5 minute video to watch and then the tour guide shows you through the depot and the upstairs living quarters. All the furniture and items have all been donated, it's really... 更多

This is a wonderful tour for all ages!! And, it's FREE! Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the station as well as how traveling by train back in the 1880s would have been.
If you're into trains you'll love it even if you're not there's a lot of history here to see and read about. Such an old old station. It's just fantastic that they have all of the building restored to what it used to look like.
Free, but you will be asked for a voluntary donation. Great for those who enjoy train history. There is a resident docent who enjoys answering questions. Is located adjacent to the National Trails Museum.
This was an interesting little railroad depot. The docent was a very nice gentleman but we couldn't seem to find a way to politely and graciously end our tour (he kept going and going). Ultimately, others came and while he was talking with them we politely snuck out and drove away.
This may have been the station Harry disembarked from, but it is not the place. As part of the preservation plan, this station was moved here in the early 2000s. But the station reminds me of one in my family's ancestral village / town of Graettinger, Iowa - now long since torn down (I saw it as a kid). It... 更多
