This museum is entered through the Old Mount Clare Station off Poppleton Street. The 37 acre indoor/outdoor museum's extensive collection of locomotives, bold originals and replicas, dates from 1829. In addition to examples of many types of engines, the museum contains dioramas, bridge models, telephone and telegraph apparatus and a miniature railroad.

The shops that once surrounded the station built thousands of cars and engines and was known as "The Railroad University".
