This railroad museum features steam locomotives, passenger cars, a reconstructed telegraph office, model trains and other attractions.

The museum building is a replica of an 1880s-style railroad depot. Exhibits feature original photographs by pioneer photographers such as William Henry Jackson and Louis Charles McClure, as well as paintings by Howard L Fogg, Otto Kuhler, Ted Rose and other artists.

The museum hosted a "Steampunk at the Station" event in May 2017. People attending in steampunk garb were given a chance to pose in front of the museum's artifacts.
