The Douglas Railroad Museum and Visitor Center is housed in the historic FE & MV Railroad Passenger Depot.
The historic depot was updated in 2018 and today features exhibits highlighting Douglas and the region’s railroad history. The building is listed on the National Historic Register and is surrounded by seven historic railcars including the Chicago Burlington and Quincy Railroad 4-8-4 Steam Locomotive #5633. Visitors are invited to climb aboard many of the rail cars including a day coach, a dining car and a new caboose exhibit!
