  • Went there after a great trip on the Smokey Mountain Railroad ( admission free with ticket). I enjoyed it, especially the large miniature display. But you could see all the men's eyes light up as they...  more »
  • Maybe good if you are a train buff. Not really exciting, at least to me. Entrance was included in our train ride package. Lots of Little model train cars to see if that interests you.  more »
  • We took our son's family and the grandkids to see the train museum. They were so excited. The staff was really nice, obviously lots of dealing with youngsters. The adults also had fun looking at all t...  more »

  • The train ride through the gorge was very scenic.
  • 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 family experience $
  • 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.
