Long Description:
The main museum is located in the historic Southern Pacific Depot, and can be breezed through in about 15 minutes. Outside of the main museum is an annex, with a gallery devoted to the history of transportation in Brownsville. There are some exhibits and a real locomotive, but the oddest thing is the miniature railroad, which winds up mountains and through tunnels - things that just aren’t found anywhere near Brownsville.
Theme:
Local history.
