The Seymour Community Museum
The Seymour Community Museum on Depot Street was established as a bicentennial project, opening in 1976. It presents a history of the settlement of the area and the transition from a lumbering to an agricultural economy. See the general store, an old time funeral parlor, doctor’s office, beauty shop, granny home, and much more. Considerable space is devoted to “Hamburger Charlie” and the origin of the burger in Seymour. The museum features the world's largest collection of hamburger-related items.

Model Railroad Exhibit at the Railroad Depot
Your Burger Fest button also provides you with free admission to the HO scale model railroad layout in the railroad depot. The trains serpentine through tunnels and across bridges controlled by a Radio Digital System. Relive the days of old and see one of the largest permanent layouts in the state. View the miniature fire scene, working crossing signals, and numerous electronic signs that illuminate the scenery. This is a great attraction for kids of all ages.
