    I loved this museum! At my home, we have a train table and it was really neat getting to see their model train next to the gift shop. If you go, it is DEFINITELY worth going on a tour of the train car...  more »

    My husband and I stopped by here on vacation since he likes trains. We had a great time! Our tour guide was so knowledgeable and passionate about what he was doing. We were able to tour the train and see how the cars were set up when the train was in use. There is also a two floor self guided museum that allows you to explore railroad history. For someone who knew absolutely nothing about trains prior, I had a really good time. This place is definitely worth a visit!

    Don't let this place fool you. It's a great place to visit. The museum is really small and disappointing but the tour through the different train cars really made it great! Our tour guide was wonderful and knowledgeable about the railroad, the different train cars, and it's history. It's worth a visit if you are in the area.

    A very nice railroad museum. The young man (Luke) that took us on the tour was very knowledgeable. We enjoyed touring the rail cars.

    Great venue that usually hosts some fun events. Does the polar express for the kids during the winter. Adult events as well. We had our high school reunion here, too. Very nice vintage building.

    Beautiful historic venue for weddings and events in addition to a train museum that's open daily. Staff was great and venue is large, very clean with great amenities. Highly recommend.
