Old Depot Museum reviews
Model railroad set up, nice history of some local businesses. Good job at taking Covid19 precautions. more »
We visited this place yesterday on a whim, just to get away from home for an afternoon. The price was right, only $4.00 each for those over 55. There is so much to see inside about the Ottawa area... more »
Amazing history in this little town and fantastic museum especially for train buffs! We really enjoyed the entire place but I loved the old videos of cattle shows on the courthouse lawn!
Very historical and it's good for people to learn of small story not told by many
