The Martisco Station, also known as Martisco Station Railway Museum, is a railroad station in Marcellus, New York that was built in 1870 by the Auburn and Syracuse Railroad in a distinctive Italianate style. Decorative brackets support an unusually long overhang of the roof. The line and station were eventually acquired by the New York Central Railroad.

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2007.

The station is owned by the Central New York Chapter of the National Railway Historical Society, and is open as a museum during limited hours in the summer. The rail line that it is on is not in regular commercial use, but there are occasional excursion trains which stop at the station.
