Niles Essanay Silent Film Museum is located in the Niles District of Fremont. It is a place that celebrates the history of silent films and the era's brightest star, the one and only Charlie Chaplin. Did you know Chaplin actually made a few films in Fremont and had set foot in this very museum, back when it was a part of Eassany Film Company? I certainly had no idea until my visit today! The museum is full of cool pictures, memorabilia, and old cameras and movie projectors.

This museum is a hidden gem. Must have passed by thousands of times but only knew about it today because my girl was looking for nearby attractions on the gps. We ended up spending a good amount of time going through the artifacts and displays. It's small, but there is a lot to take in. Most of the exhibits are hands on and kid friendly, but we were the only ones there today. Stuart, the man on duty when we arrived, was a great host and a wealth of information.

We parked in the town of Niles and walked around. Saw the train and wanted to go visit the Depot. We were so excited to see the museum open. The staff is friendly and informative. They have a model train set up and it looks like they're continuing to add upgrades to it. A great place to take children to see the history of this quaint town. If you're in the area stop on by, there is no admission charge just donate what you can if you would like to.
