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.

Had a good look around in here, lovely train displays and models. Also lots of displays of soldiers engaged in various battles. Spent quite a lot of time in here as there is quite a lot to study.

There's not much to see at The Old Depot Museum, but if you like trains and other models, it's worth a visit. If not, you might be disappointed. The staff is pretty friendly, and it's not out of the way if you're already in downtown...More
