Historical artifacts and various other items from the surrounding area are on display in the Brooks Museum, run by the Brook Historical Society. The museum is only open on certain days during certain times of the year.

Their home is inside the old Brooks train station. This depot was moved from its location next to the Union Pacific railroad to the Antique Powerland group of museums in the 1980s.

As can be seen from the photos, the station has been restored to its original appearance, including exterior signs and a literature rack from the era. The only non-historic signs are those that identify the station as being the home of the Brooks Historical Society.

While the station may have been relocated far from the railroad it once served, the trolley line operated by the Oregon Electric Railway Historical Society runs right past the station.
