    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.
