  • I've taken my son here a couple of times when he was younger and he had a blast. He still has a passion for trains to this day. I had a great time as well. Now that I'm back in San Diego I have to see the other CA-AZ railroad museum in Campo. I can't wait to see that one.
  • Very impressive museum and very well done. Definitely recommend seeing the movie and it enhances the experience. Museum is divided between European and Pacific battles, tells very personal stories.
