  • Love this place. Great for the kids and anyone who loves trains and history. Much of the museum is outdoors so best bet is to have a decent pair of shoes and ideally pick a nice weather day. Lots of cool things to see.
  • Great display of varying vintages of train engines and cars. They have a couple of other transit options from varying vintages (read old checked cabs). The train ride is pretty short and doesn't really go anywhere, but if you have a toddler who loves trains they'll enjoy it.
  • Love this place! Great toddler Thursday event. My son loved the museum, trains, and train ride. I appreciate the big fan inside during the summer. Save your ticket for reduced admission on a following visit.
  • The museum is a bit old but is the only one in the metro area to have a full scale train running on the property. The train doesn't go far due to space restrictions and etc., but is definitely a place to explore.
  • Great museum and great experience with some very nice people volunteering BUT, their property is on the other side of the main railway and the only entrance and exit can be blocked for an hour and a half or more by a train and they know this and do not tell you about it. It is not their fault that a train would stop there but you should be aware that you can be stuck like we were for over an hour and a half after we wanted to leave. It was only after their closing time at 5pm approached were they motivated to discover a back entrance?? No establishment should ever have the potential of their paying customers to feel trapped and not be able to leave, especially one that caters to small children. In fact, I thought that was illegal??? They need to have this posted or mentioned before you pay or they should have a backup plan for when it is this long.
