The Oyster Bay Railroad Museum in scenic Oyster Bay, NY is dedicated to preserving the rich legacy of Long Island's railroad history.
The process of building and funding the museum is currently in progress. Find the latest news at the Development Desk.
The proposed structure for the Oyster Bay Railroad Museum will consist of two major elements:An indoor museum exhibit area contained in the historic Oyster Bay railroad station
An outdoor exhibit area featuring Locomotive #35 and other historic examples of railroad rolling stock.
These will be linked by a short pedestrian path as shown on the plot plan below.
The Museum/Station will also incorporate an Oyster Bay Visitor Center. The Center will provide information, literature and local promotional material. It is consistent with, and forms a complementary component to our goal of providing an educational, historical, and family-friendly experience to residents, tourists, and visitors to the hamlet. The Center will offer visitor specific services at an ideally located, safe and uncongested site. It will allow for parking, LIRR convenience, and can accommodate a "Touring Trolley" embarkation point for the other Oyster Bay civic, commercial and cultural points of interests.
Currently the Oyster Bay Railroad Museum is housed in the Preview Center, located at 102 Audrey Avenue in downtown Oyster Bay. This interim facility contains selected displays from the OBRM's growing collection, exhibits outlining our ambitious plans for the Oyster Bay Railroad Museum of the future, and a gift shop containing an ever-changing selection of rail-themed merchandise for that special rail buff in your life. Prior to the completion of the Museum, the Center also offers general Oyster Bay visitor specific services at an ideally located, safe and uncongested site.
