A 1914 landmark where railroad history, Roosevelt's Presidency, Vanderbilt's Empire and Hudson Valley’s legacy converge.
Come visit, experience and learn about Railroading in the Hudson Valley. The 2 ½ acre site is part of a picturesque riverfront town park. The heart of our museum is the 110 year old Hyde Park Station. Restored and cared for by the Hudson Valley Railroad Society, the station is a time capsule from the glory days of New York railroading
Our expanded show on November 10, 2024 will be celebrating Hyde Park Station’s 110th anniversary with a ride-on-railroad, new vendors, operating model train layouts, holiday characters, Polar Express raffles, and more.
More than just dioramas, our Model Railroads are recreations of areas of the Hudson Valley. Join members and volunteers to build layouts and perform realistic railroad "operations."
In 1959 the Hyde Park Station site appeared in Alfred Hitchcock’s classic movie “North by Northwest." Roger Thornhill's train makes an unscheduled stop at our station where Eve points out that, "Two men got out of a police car as we pulled into the station. They weren't smiling."
