about Michigan Transit Museum:
The depot is restored to its 1900 appearance. Inside are exhibits surrounding railroading of that era and a small gift shop.
Families can take train rides from the nearby Joy Park. There is also a kids' playscape. Call for current prices and schedules.
Cool fact: It is said that in 1862 at this depot, young Thomas Edison saved the station agent's small child from certain death. The child was on the tracks in the path of a rolling box car. In appreciation, the station agent taught Tom telegraphy.
