How to Find the Museum

Parksley is two miles west of U.S. Route 13 on State Route 176 (or Parksley Road). That's about midway between Salisbury, Md. and the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel ... about an hour from either one.

Parksley Road becomes Bennett Street (named for one of the founders of the town) when you reach the town limits. Just before Bennett crosses the tracks, turn right on Dunne Avenue. The area to the left is Railroad Square, site of the Railway Museum. Also located nearby are the Antique Car Museum and a Gift Shop.
