  • Never been on a train before it was a great time. This was gift for my parents as well and they had a wonderful Time as well. Would definitely recommend and would definitely do it again. Thank you to a wonderful staff all very friendly and so full of information. Entertainment was outstanding :-)
  • Very good museum. Great for kids and adults alike. Went with family that really wanted to go. I did not expect to like it but was pleasantly surprised. Lots of full sized trains (indoors) so great adventure even in the winter or on a bad weather day. It is also more than just trains, they have a lot of history on the harbor and examples of storefronts and businesses from back in the day.
  • The museum has so many trains, as well as a lot of information about the history of the railroad system in Minnesota. This is a great place for kids and adults as well.
  • Great collection of old locomotives and train cars, about half of which you can walk through. 3 year-old liked it well enough to request returning the following day. Follow the yellow line on the sidewalk to find the museum on the track-side of the Depot.
  • If you, or your children, love trains, this is a must-see. They have a variety of trains that you can take a look at. Fun!
