Current Exhibits

 

Housed in Saratoga’s original 1915 Union Pacific Railroad Depot, the Saratoga Museum's exhibits feature the area's geological uprising and prehistoric past, the determination of pioneer men and women who settled the West, and how the arrival of the Union Pacific Railroad brought commerce and industry to the Valley.
