Eastern Shore Railway Museum reviews
Just west of US13 on the Eastern Shore. The museum is free and operates on donations. They have some neat rail cars you can enter. They have done a great job restoring them. The site has informative..... more »
I live right down the street from this place. I will occasionally bring my son when we're bored. They only have early morning hours on the weekend so make sure to familiarize yourself with them. With that out of the way, what it lacks in size it more than makes up for in presentation. They have an amazing scale model of the old railroad system complete with toy electric trains that run the tracks. A lot of TLC went into this setup. This is definitely one of the nicer free museums on the shore and even more so you have a little one who happens to be into trains. The people who run the museum are always friendly and up to share the wealth of knowledge they have about the Eastern Shore's Railway system. This is well worth a visit.
The town of Parksley is a throwback to an era of a gentle time. The museum is a reflection of that. There is no entry fee only donations are requested. The museum was made possible by a retired doctor who loved trains. It is a small museum but it is enchanting. While in the town be sure to stop in to the Five and Dime Store which was started in 1956 and still has its original interior.
