  • The ride on the old train was nice but the barn with the old cars inside was the highlight for me and I am a female. The walk around the village was a little lame. The gift shop was nice to browse aro...  more »

  • Very cool museum setup. The small village gives the area a fun feel, and allows for a lot of exploring. Definitely come here for the Polar Express (for Christmas).
  • We visited in June 2017 and it was well worth the cost of admission. Our kids had fun and the adults stayed entertained. Not touristy and definitely not a trap. It's a good half-day adventure for a family.
  • My family and I bought tickets for the "North Pole Express". Included was a short but fun train ride, cocoa and cookies, crafts, and access to the museum and historic buildings onsite. The experience was worth every bit the $20 per ticket price. We are planning to go back in the summer to explore everything more fully.
  • My son loved this place. It was great experiences. The train rides were so fun. We will definitely go back if we're in the area.
  • Had a great time with our 17 month old, he fed the 2 goats they have there and loved sitting on the big red fire truck. Great place for him to run around the grass areas. Us adults enjoyed the vintage car collection, ol' timey school house/home displays and also feeding the goats, brings the kid out of you(Get it. Kid. I crack myself up). Riding the train was a great time. Everyone working there is so friendly. It's free for active duty military and their family which was great and gave us the opportunity to spend money in the gift shop.
