My wife and I discovered this wonderful museum on a Sunday morning while touring Hudson, on our way to Olana. We arrived at opening and were the only guests at that early hour. The museum is large. You need well over an hour to navigate both floors without stopping to read and review all exhibits; otherwise allocate a few hours. You are shown a brief movie upon your entrance about the museum's history and directions for your self tour. We enjoyed engaging with a few employees, learning more about the museum as we toured. There are numerous well preserved artifacts, engines, and displays throughout the clean and well maintained museum. We were pleased to see that this museum caters to school children, as class tours and educational programs are available. We also enjoyed seeing the Christmas displays on numerous engines, alerting children to the hazards of fire during the holidays; guidance is offered by Penny the Penguin and Mittens the Kitten to name a few. Of course on your way out there is a well represented gift store.
