This is a great little museum attached to the visitors center. It has information about the railroad, Amelia Earhart, Lewis & Clark, and hosts a rare gun collection. It is worth walking through.

There are some interesting things in the museum but many descriptions are not very informative or all together missing. The building itself is interesting as a part of our nation's RR history.
