    Amazing: great for train lovers as well as history buffs. The Civil War exhibit also has tons of African-American history. And it's off the free Circulator's Orange Route!

    They have a penny squish machine (four different designs) in the entrance room of the museum. You do not have to pay admissions to use it :)
