  • Train ride was fun it took you through miniature villages of old Florida and displayed the population back in the 50's. Sure a lot more folks here now. The museum although small was quite interesting.  more »

  • Lots of fun for the kids. The train ride is awesome and the museum has a nice display.
  • Small museum with lots of cool stuff. There is a 1/2 mile mini train ride that was fun.
  • My toddler loved the train ride!
  • Regarding ride on train: I may change my rating later, but I think it's ridiculous that a place can't keep accurate hours on their website. Call ahead of time and don't trust the website, or you may have a disappointed child like us. The park is nice, but not worth the 1 hour drive for us.
  • If you are interested in learning about history and rail roads this is the place to be. There is also a train set there that you can ride through a section of the park. A lot of interesting items on show here. The museum is inside lakes park, so it is a stop in an all-day visit to the park.
