Linden Depot Museum prepares to open for season

Posted

LINDEN — The Linden Depot Museum is preparing for another exciting season beginning April 1. Hours will be noon to 5 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Organizers are showcasing two new exhibits this year, including the marble stairs from the Chicago Union Station and a European HO model train layout. The movie, The Untouchables, was filmed in 1987. The memorable scene of a baby carriage careening down a staircase was filmed in the Chicago Union Station. The marble staircase was replaced in 2017 and the Linden Depot Museum has acquired some of the marble stairs and has created a unique display.

Another great exhibit is being constructed and can be seen as in progress. The museum received a donation of European HO model trains. These trains are distinctly different from American trains. Staff members are creating an exhibit that highlights the unique equipment and track layout that is used in Europe.

The museum is a destination to spend some time exploring the history of railroads from another era. A visit to the museum is $6 for adults and $1 for children 12 and younger; along with free parking.

The museum is located at 520 N. Main St., Linden.
