  • In all honesty, we pulled up to the Ligonier Valley Railroad Museum, and our first thought was "That's it?" It doesn't look like much from the outside - just a building and a caboose - but it is well....  more »
  • One of the cool things that gets forgotten in the shadow of idlewild, worth the trip, especially if your kid loves thomas the train.  more »

  • The volunteer are what make this museum. Nothing is really done as self guided here. In order to understand the different railroads and the antiques found in the museum you need to talk to a volunteer. There you will get most of your information. Besides a little movie they show and the railroad cart the museum is rather small so it doesn't take long to go through it yourself.
  • The staff was so friendly and knowledgeable about the railroad! We were given a personal tour of the artifacts, shown two 10 minute videos, one about the LVRR and one about the Wilpen coke works, and we were given a personal tour of the caboose. As a railroad enthusiast, I'd definitely recommend this for anyone young or old that has an interest in railroads or the history surrounding Ligonier.
