Historic depot, the museum store is usually not open. Could have more historic photos, like has been done at the East Glacier depot.

This is very unique area in the upper western part of the state. Depot is quaint and is an active depot for AmTrack. Would suggest to all to visit. Like a little museum.  Would visit again.
