Fennimore Doll and Toy Museum
A visit to the Fennimore Doll and Toy Museum and Gift Shoppe is like taking a stroll down memory lane. A charming museum where dolls and toys are displayed in a manner that brings alive history and memories for children of all ages with over 80 display cases. Meander through the past as you view a fine assortment of articles from area collectors such as dolls, trains, pedal cars, tractors, and circus memorabilia.
The Fennimore Railroad Historical Society Museum
The Fennimore Railroad Historical Society Museum features memorabilia from Fennimore’s railroad past, and the unique narrow gauge train, affectionately known as the Dinky, which operated from 1878 to 1926.
Children enjoy riding on the operational 15″ gauge rail with 700 feet of track that sits south of the railroad museum. Scale buildings and water tower complete the miniature layout.
