Fodor's Review

North Adams's best kept secret, this museum has three floors with more than 25 permanent exhibits, including a kid-friendly model of the solar system, a model train, and full-sized reproduction of the Ft. Massachusetts Barracks Room. The building was once part of a railroad yard, and a store sells local historical-society publications.
