Wilmington Railroad Museum [NC]

The Wilmington Railroad Museum seeks to provide visitors with a fun and educational experience regarding rail in Wilmington, NC, with a special emphasis on the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad. In 2007, the museum was moved into its current headquarters, a historic 1880s railroad freight warehouse. The museum features a variety of exhibits, a library of press articles which are available to researchers on location, and a children's area featuring interactive exhibits and model trains.

The site offers historical information about the museum, brief excerpts from three of the many articles available on site in the museum library, an online gift shop, visitor information, and several photo-galleries featuring photographs of different areas of the museum.
