Residents planning a weekend outing can spend an entire day browsing all the unique stores found within the station, or just time enough to enjoy a luncheon with some friends.
Next is the Strawberry Hill Museum, featuring over thirty rooms with unique displays. There are several displays from the Netherlands, Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia, Russia, and other Eastern European countries. There is also a tea room that is open Saturdays and Sundays, which serves Slavic desserts with a choice of tea or coffee. The museum is a popular tourist attraction, in part due to its selection of original European art pieces that are for sale.

The complete tour takes 60 to 90 minutes; admission is $14.50 for adults and $5.50 for children.
