  • So much fun for kids and adults. Not very big but we spent at least 2 hours there. Bonus, a train going by with area where you can watch it pass by.
  • Would have to be The most wonderful museum ever, we loved it, one of the places to go back to incase we missed something. ❤
  • Very interesting, there's lots of things to look at, the train models were spectacular and the information was quite interesting. Lots of activities and there were a few interactive parts.
  • This place is wonderful and fascinating! The trains on diaplay are beautifully maintained, and if a volunteer is in, you can go into the engine and see what it was like to operate a steam engine!!
  • TRAINS 🚂 🚊 I LOVE TRAINS!!!!! And there’s trains that drive right beside here like every 15 minuets!!!! It’s awesome! Also a great history lesson for children of all ages! (Or children at heart like me!)
