    Make sure you go downstairs because there is a wonderful exhibit. It is a model of the representation of what Kelso looks back during its heyday. It was made by George Lowell. It is really neat to see all the buildings and to see how the train tracks were laid out. It was a pretty important station at one time.

    The have this lovely little theater inside that has film presentation of the history of this area. The chairs were very comfortable. It's just past the visitor center counter, the first floor and just to the left of the stairs.

    There is actually three floors to this museum. First floor, second floor and another exhibit down in the basement. It is filled with some wonderful historical information of the local area and the history of this depot. I enjoyed reading the history of the folks who lived here and made this their home for many years. Many of the exhibits you can touch and have some learning exhibits for children to experience. I know my son loved getting on the saddle exhibit.

    After a nearly two decade-long haitus, the Kelso Depot lunch counter—"The Beanery"—is back in business. Enjoy a hot cup of coffee, cold ice cream, a fresh deli sandwich, or the latest gossip in this unique setting, painstakingly restored to its historic, 1924 appearance.
