  • This is a nice little museum which doesn't take much time to go through. They have some cars that you can walk through, a model train room, small museum which includes a station, and a miniature train...  more »
  • This is a great place to take the kids and spend a few hours. It's very interesting to see all the model trains and the model town of Milton. The outdoor models are really cool too.  more »

  • This is a cute family activity. My 3 y.o. loved walking in and playing in the train cars. The volunteer who runs the model train room was very nice and talked to us about the trains and was so sweet to our son. They have more running trains in the back with a small train track that kids can ride in. My wife and I enjoyed the historical items and info in the area next to the dining cars. I wish they had more in the gift shop. It was just model train items and kits to make or repair trains.
  • It's Awesome! It was so interesting to actually board the trains of the past and to see the train station as it was back in the day. I found it very interesting.
  • Worth a visit! Very polite staff, well- maintained, and by donation. My son loves the viewing the outside model train display (pretty sure he could be there for hours) and the riding the mini train. A great place!
  • Nice little museum with a pretty cool model train setup.
  • Quite interesting, the folks working there very kind, and it was free!
