  • Didn't go to the museum but went to their Friday night concert series. Was definitely a nice relaxing atmosphere. Food and drinks were a little pricey but about what I expected them to be. I'll definitely go back for another!
  • So fun! The kids liked the small train layout they had and dad had fun reading all about the railroad. It's nice that Horseshoe curve is included in the cost and totally worth going to both if you can. We will go back!
  • This museum is outstanding. 3 floors of great information stories and experiences in railroading. You get a joint ticket for the horseshoe curve as well and make sure to check out the turn table and wheel house.
  • Wish we had allowed more time. Needed 2-3 hours. Great interactive exhibits that were inclusive of the many workers on the Pennsylvania Railroad. Museum is in an old building. Very clean.
  • It was enjoyed, had a lot information. The theater was really good loved hearing and seeing those who worked tracks tell their stories.
