Conneaut Historical Railroad Museum Reviews & Ratings
Nice depot! Has a classic steam engine and caboose. The railroad area itself is spectacular. Bessemer, NS and CSX in this town.... Oh my!
Wow you can find lots of history here for as small as it seems The Nickle Plate Road is here with steam engine 755 sitting there. You can going in the Caboose too! Plus trains speed by all day and prolly night time as well!
Great place with a ton of info about Trains and such. Very friendly staff that are a wealth of knowledge. I had no idea that the train was so big. I was only able to be there for a short while. I am going to go back and take my time.
It is closed for the season but nice facility.
My wife and I were in Conneaut and saw the train. She looked on Google to see what it was so we decided to stop and see. The bad thing was that they were in the process of painting the engine and cars so we were restricted in taking that in. As far as the museum part, it is free (donations are accepted) and there a number of items to look at. When I Googled the museum Google mentioned that the museum maybe permanently closed. That is not true. You can probably take everything in in an hour and a half or less depending on you interest in train memorabilia.
