  • Great place with good local history exhibition. Pick a nice day and go for a ride on one of the sailboats they run off the dock there, shoot back and relax for two hours as they take you out and about. Then grab a bite at the old Griswold inn on main street. Relaxing and enjoyable.
  • 2nd annual visit did not disappoint. Loved train layout on 3rd floor, nicely designed exhibits on 2nd and 1st floor focused on the river. Fascinating combination of history, transport, environment and more.
  • Super fun and informative. My grand kids enjoyed it as much as I did.
  • Part museum, part story time and part toy train display. It's a weird mix, but the kids seem to like it. A little expensive for what it is, glad we got our tickets on Groupon.
  • Fun for little kids not much for teens
