For the railroad enthusiasts, don’t miss the Amboy Depot Museum where you will walk into the former depot and division headquarters of the Illinois Central Railroad, which also includes the original brick tarmac surrounding the depot and the grounds of the former rail-yard now preserved as a city park. The museum is home to artifacts of both the history of Amboy and the Illinois Central Railroad. The museum complex also contains a freight house with additional artifacts, a fully restored one-room country schoolhouse, a retired steam engine and a caboose.
