  • This is an amazing place. It is one of the few round houses left and the floor has been redone due to a storm a few years ago and there are parties held here. Be that as it may, it is an incredible hi...  more »

  • Very great train museum with a large roundhouse full of trains. Big enough indoor section you could enjoy a day here in the winter. Tons of kids sections for lots of kid entertainment. There is a scavenger hunt you can pick up at the front desk and even turn in for a small prize at then end. There are also model train layouts my kids love. There are several trains you can go in and pretend to drive. One occasionally smokes and my kids actually think they are driving it!
  • Great place to take the kids or if you are a railroad buff. We took our class of pre k , kindergarten and first graders for a train ride. They got to explore in the roundhouse and nearby buildings. It was educational as well as fun.
  • Great museum! Great variety of different trains and my kids (10 and 3) loved children's area. It was worth the money and time spent. It was really interesting to learn about the different purposes of the trains they had and the history behind them. Overall, we all had an awesome time, we were the about 2 hours. I highly recommend the museum.
  • 36 dollars for 2,way yay too much. Nice display inside but nothing impressive outside.
  • Went to A day out with Thomas with my son for his 3rd birthday Hes a Thomas fanatic! And we've gone there on a reg day just to tour the museum Its very nice and a lot of fun And the people who work there are very kind and helpful We had a guy walk us around the trains giving us history lessons on the trains, it was great! Definitely a great place to go with the kids or even for yourself! The train merry go round is awesome too 😉
