  • I've come here a million times and I will continue to come here. I really like the Gold Coast Railroad Museum. It's so cool and if you're ever looking to take some cool photos, this is a "must-see" place. Great for kids, families, couples, or however you wish to go. You can read and learn about the trains or even take a ride for yourself.
  • For adults that are into trains. This is a great place. Don't expect the smithsonian museum. Lots of these people that reviewed poorly had unrealistic expectations. Truly a place where I felt like a kid. Nostalgia everywhere. Lots of look at. I spent about 2 hours walking around and exploring. I didn't do any tours but I plan on returning. Worth the money hands down. If you're not into trains or history, go somewhere else! Stop leaving poor reviews.
  • It is a small museum that's worthy to visit. The Presidential railcar Ferdinand Magellan was my favorite spot in the museum. It would be great if they could repair and maintain in better condition some of the others railcars.
  • Lot of trains that have not been touched. Cool if you like to explore, but if you are looking for restored trains....not here.
  • They are an amazing group of volunteers and fans of railways. The museum is like a walk through time. It is worth getting the yearly membership.
