  • This is an impressive train exhibit with lots to look at and enjoy. We brought my 2 year old who LOVES trains and he really enjoyed it. It's nice that they have step stools around for the little ones ...  more »

  • Very expansive train layout with night time display. Shows are 30 minutes and run every hour on the half hour. Lots of detail in the train set up. You can tell they put a lot of care into the details. Lots of cool things to find in the displays. The display is very popular around Christmas so try to go not during the holidays.
  • Surprisingly impressive. The amount of detail and sheer density of stuff to look at is fantastic.
  • This is very fun place to visit. All the trains and miniature cities feels like magic. I definitely feels like a kid again. The show is about 15-20 minutes long.
  • The building itself is a dump, but plenty of interesting stores inside. From model trains, comic books, action figures, wrestling, sewing and antiques.
  • Three large layouts with a lot of cityscape modelled. Not as technically complex a layout as I was hoping for, such as with working switches and signals, but cute none the less. Geared more towards kids than enthusiast. The staff is really friendly and a pleasure to talk to. Overall it's worth checking out.
