  • And you thought you were a pack rat? This place shows you no matter how much stuff you collected over the years it is a spit in the bucket compared what has been collected and put on display at Nothla...  more »
  • The current owner built the entire model railroad complex himself. In room after room there are landscapes, bridges (some dazzling), running trains, villages, and mountains. It takes a good 1/2 - 1 1/...  more »

  • The level of detail that went into each display is terrific. We (toddler, parents, and grandma) spent almost an hour marveling at the trains and detailed landscapes within the first 25% of the self guided tour. The whole set-up was thoughtfully done and you can tell that the design team has a great passion for what they do. We took a mini train ride around the property once we completed the tour. It was a two car train in stellar condition and it was a perfect way to end our visist. 4 stars instead of 5 due to the following: The only drawback would be the place is aged and could use some TLC, especially in areas of the building (some specific corners) that seem to be in disrepair. However overall, when you consider the age of the displays, you provide some concessions to the overall appearance. I would say this is a great place to visit and I plan on going back again.
  • Absolutely insane. I can see why kids would love to spend their time here (lots of trains that actually move), but we had a group of 4 adults, and we spent 1 hour going through the first 25% of the displays :) you just get sucked into watching the trains move around and drive through caves and over bridges. And then noticing the small details in the scenes that give it all a different spin. Knowing what we know now, I'd say you need at least 3 hours to enjoy yourself.
  • The detail in this place is insane! If you take your time and sort of put yourself into each scene as you walk by, you really appreciate the time and effort that went into Northlandz. We spent hours taking about each layout, not even realizing how long we were in there. It was just so interesting and captivating for both me and my son.
  • Needs to be updated and cleaned; the trains were interesting but not a lot running and they seemed dusty. The other "collections" were obviously not cared for. The entire place is dirty and dingy. The ladies bathroom was gross....definitely try not to use it. Giving it 2 stars because someone out a lot of work into the layout at some point but sad to see what a state it's in.
  • I wasn't sure what to expect out of an experience like this. I'm not a train enthusiast but my 3 yr old loves anything to do with automobiles and transportation. He was thrilled with this place, and if we hadn't rushed after 25% of the exhibit, we would have been there for 4 hrs. There is A LOT to see, and can be a bit overwhelming, but if you are into trains, you will love this place. My son was surprisingly into all the detailed scenery (train wrecks, tiny classic cars, helicopters, etc.). It is astounding how much work was put into this place, and the detail is really something to be appreciated. The ONLY issue I had was that the exhibits were not at eye level for my 36" child, and I had to carry him all throughout the museum so he could see everything.
