  • Very educational and informative about a huge event that impacted so many children in the US.
  • I had no idea of the history of orphans a century ago from the big East coast cities and how they found homes by being put on trains to the farmlands of America. At first blush you might think it was exploiting the kids because they would go to families and farms where they would help the farm succeed. But this little museum bears the testimonies of children who were so happy to find a stable home after roaming the big cities as homeless orphans.
  • The National Orphan Train Museum tells the story of the placing out of homeless and abandoned children from New York City to new homes all across the US and Canada from 1954 to 1929. Over 200,000 children were placed out through the Children's Aid Society. A visit to this museum will amaze and touch your heart like no other museum.
  • My grand mother was a big supporter of the orphan train museum. Alvine Worley we miss you.
