The Customs House Museum boasts one of the largest model railroad layouts in the region in our Kimbrough Gallery. We invite you to interact with our exhibit, controlling the animation of action within the layouts. Make the figures and automobiles move, and helicopters fly. Be sure to visit Thomas the Tank Engine at the Island of Sodor, as well as the Hogwarts Express.
Check out the history of train travel with the museum’s historical railroad poster collection. View the numerous static displays of collectable model locomotive engines and the many types of railroad rolling stock.
We invite you to join our Volunteer Operators to help run and maintain the train exhibit, which began in 1987.
Trains run from 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm every Sunday.
Check out our Snowflake Special Model Trains on view this winter!
Visitors, please be aware that some of our gallery spaces will be undergoing infrastructure changes and upgrades in January – February. Thank you for your understanding and your loyalty during our exciting renovation!
