The Museum offers a variety of experiences for all ages. Its stone-built passenger station is a popular destination for families.

A Lackawanna Railroad semaphore, a Susquehanna Railroad order board, and cast iron signs have all been donated to the Museum. The collection is updated frequently, so you can always find something new to explore.

The RMLI was established in 1892 in the historic freight house of the Long Island Railway. It was the Eastern terminus of the Main Line from Brooklyn, and it was also the reason for the LIRR to come to Greenport. The Museum building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and features a permanent collection of railroad artifacts. You can also see changing exhibits on a regular basis. There are also many educational programs available throughout the year.

The Thomaston Railway Museum is located in an 1881 train station. There are hourly excursions for visitors. The museum’s Santa Claus Special excursion train is a popular tradition.
