The Old Depot is a different kind of museum but really quite excellent. There is a battlefield diorama which gives the visitor a good understanding of the layout (the famed figure seven from history books). Many wonderful model trains and ship models as well. Still...More

Wonderful displays, especially the diorama of the battlefield. The train set ups were awesome. We had some train enthusiasts with us and they really enjoyed that.

They have lots and lots of great models... Trains, boats, buildings. The battlefield diarama is really well done too. Even the building itself is a piece of history. Disappointed because we expected more trains from a Depot museum.

If you are interested in a better understanding of the battle field layout, nothing I know of does a better job than viewing the model of the battle field. It also has many well detailed models of period steamboats.

The man who made all the models was there and so interesting to talk to. Model trains were unreal. Must see.

The museum is ok. The diorama gives you perspective of the battlefield. It's not a must see but an good perspective on the battlefield. If you are a train enthusiast, this is a great place.
