Tour the Victorian era museum. Old station charm. Little gift shop. A running model train area is very detailed. And you can look inside a dining car. And also, there is a train ride.

The museum is well worth visiting. It is small but has many interesting pieces. The Rockwell collection is very nice. I really enjoyed the visit. It is very manageable to see in an hour so it is a nice stop.
