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.

We could have spent much more time than the 90 minutes we were in there, just going around and around. Fascinating.

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.

We arrived at 4:15 with a 5:00 closing. Had read to watch the movie. We watched the last few minutes and they said they would not restart due to the late hour. The staff was quite knowledgable but not being that familiar with the war,...More
