New Exhibit Opening Mid-June

The museum’s next special exhibition “Rail-A-Bration: Wayne County’s Railroad History” will open in mid-June and include vintage photos of the beloved Kiwanis train and other mini-train artifacts. We will explore Wayne County’s railroad history, train stations, memorabilia, and local train antiques. There will be a running model train display created by Waynesborough Model Railroad Club in the center of the main gallery. We are scheduling some exciting train history speakers and workshops, as well as related kid’s events. Follow our page for more train show updates!
