Missouri Pacific Train Station Museum


category : Museums
Missouri Pacific Train Station Museum The Chamber of Commerce, the original railway depot station, was completely remodeled with a lot of hard work, dedication, and voluntarism from local citizens. Included in the building is the office of the Chamber as well as an information area, a community room, and the Historical Museum.

The Aurora Historical Society has furnished the old baggage area of the 1909 Missouri Pacific with many interesting items. The Society has been storing a vast amount of interesting goods for the past 13 years and is now making wonderful displays within the museum that brings smiles to the faces of the older generation and wonder to the young who have never seen some of the items displayed. A copy of the original blueprints are displayed within the four restored rooms - Baggage Room, Men's Waiting Room, Women's Waiting Room, and Ticket Office/Bathrooms.

Also displayed and for sale are Aurora Centennial throw covers and some maps of the area.
