Specialty Museum Museum
A museum for all ages! Featuring many operating layouts... from G to Z scales on display. See detailed operating layouts with trains winding through tunnels, over bridges and by miniature train stations and buildings... even Thomas the Tank that operates by a light sensor system. It started with a model railroad which Roger Hartmann owned as a boy. A love of trains that both he and his wife, Nelly have shared has led to the opening of a first-rate museum. For over 20 years they have been traveling the world collecting old and new railroad items. All ages will delight in seeing the numerous displays, featuring many operating layouts.The hobby shop offers a full line of model supplies for the beginner to the advanced. The Hartmann's truly offer an enjoyable year-round attraction. Located just 4 miles north of North Conway, NH.

  • Nice people Been here in 2015 for vacation.They have great layouts and a thomas the train layout.And a great Store. Would Recommend going there.
  • Nice family-run business...Always nice to talk with Mr Hartmann...Kids and parents loved it!
  • This is a very cool and fun place to take children and enjoy model trains but the "German-American" owners in charge are very strict and watch like hawks (not saying they shouldn't be aware) but, basically, it's pretty much "kids are to be seen standing in a forward position and not heard." Price to get in is cheap but the items for sale are quite expensive. It's a fun stop but be prepared to have your children completely in line with no noise, disruptions, or oversight on the rules that are posted about.
  • I cannot imagine the kind people at Hartmann being anything but accommodating. To invoke any negative sentiment from them must require incredible lack of decency and respect. I been going there since early 2000 when I was a kid.
  • DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME. We went in August of 2011, going through the museum, not to bad. I have three boys under 8, so trains are in my life. They enjoyed the museum alot, spent about 45 minutes there until they heard we could ride the train out front, then we had to leave to get a ride only to find out you have to purchase items from three tables ONLY at the front of the store, thinking to myself not all bad, we can get something for a couple of bucks - NO WAY - everything there was between $8 and $10 and IT WAS ALL CRAP. My husband even asked if he could buy something else to equal the $30, it was a firm NO. And then this woman comes from the back, eyeing us like we were about to steal the store. We were told not to let the children touch anything because it would "come out of mom and dad's purse if it was broken" hello to you to @#**#@. About 2 minutes later my middle son is CRYING, I assumed it was because I was not buying the crap on the tables for the ride, so I took him outside to see what was wrong. He said mom "SHE PUSHED ME", She told him not to touch the magazine and pushed him away from them - a magazine he already had in the car. Needless to say we will not go back and they are lucky we took no further action. I advise anyone who might be interested in going there not to. There are alot of train places to go, we have found most of them, DO NOT GO THERE! They do not deserve anyone's business or money, what they deserve is to be out of business.
