Historic RailPark & Train Museum
Trains aren't time machines, but the old rail cars at the Historic RailPark & Train Museum transport you back in time nonetheless. With exhibits covering eras as far back as the Civil War, visitors learn how trains impacted the way the United States formed and grew, covering topics such as segregation on the railroad and the lives of hoboes. A rare WWII hospital car shows one way medicine was practiced in war time, and sleeper and dining cars depict how train travel evolved through the eras. Guided tours are included with admission throughout the day, and everyone gets a turn running the model-railroad display.
