  • Great museum and shop for souvenirs. They have a lot of older scale trains and large scale trains. They have an awesome train layout which is the high point I think. 
  • My 3-year old son loves trains. This was a perfect way to spend the morning before our ride on the "Polar Express." They have quite an impressive display of trains with a few being interactive for kid...  more »
  • The museum was wonderful. Trains of every kind, color and displayed beautifully. They have little villages set up everywhere.

  • This experience was a major disappointment!!!!! Save your money!!!!! Writing to help all of you to avoid a rip off and loss of a couple hundred dollars! Read positive reviews and my wife and I were excited to drive to Bryson City from Hot Springs to do this! A 90 minute drive to a little town that has nothing to offer! The train speed was very, very slow so that you barely felt that you were moving and there was really nothing to see most of the time. Residents in town told us that the drive in a car takes about 20 minutes and you see as much! 4 and half hours sitting at a little table and an average lunch. People talking loudly in the train car. You have an hour layover in order to go in an outfitter store for overpriced merchandise and a few eating places hoping you will spend money! I have never written a negative review, but felt I must do this to help others avoid it. People are so excited to board and then you see the miserable faces getting off four hours later. I am telling you that you could walk fast to keep up with train! Don't do it and if you do, I told you so!!!!!!!!
  • Took my wife here for her birthday it was great fun and lots of sights to check out on the ride
  • Great little shop! Offered coffee and fudge for very reasonable prices. Also had many gifts available in the store. The part I liked the most was the huge variety of jellies, jams, and butters! They were delicious and make great gifts.
  • Compared to the train ride in Blue Ridge, this one stinks. The towns are dumpy, and the employees are rude and uncaring. The windows on the train are small. It is run by a "for-profit" company, which has resulted in cost cutting and lousy service.
  • A great shop to stop by if you're in the area. Loved their hot chocolate, friendly staff, and cool items all over the store. Best part about them? Easily the best jams, butters, salsa, and sauces I've come across! Locally made, and all fresh/nature ingredients. Can't get much better than that.
