  • For really small kids, this is probably an exciting adventure. I don't think older kids would find it to be and ours did not. The decorations on the train were just kind of tired and old barely any li...  more »
  • Was a little disappointed. My feet were freezing the entire trip. Thought there would be Christmas Music. The Santa was awesome! Hot chocolate was very good! May try again next year.  more »
  • A wonderful assortment of TRAIN items - so the "transportation" moniker may be a bit misleading. Neat old trains and train memorabilia, but... the place is in dire need of financial help to get the pl...  more »

  • It's in a sad state right now. It feels like it's slowly dying. The train runs in one direction for about 300yrds then goes back. Diesel is poured into the engine using plastic jugs and a funnel. Rarely do you see more than one other family there so combine that with a junkyard of old trains and it feels sad and lonely. If you go once there's little reason to come back - that is, unless you have a toddler. We're here quite often because of his love for trains. Locally, it's our best option. Every time I go I expect a sign announcing their permanent closure. It's a matter of when, not if.
  • While not the biggest or most impressive railroad museum in the country, the Indiana Transportation Museum sports some incredibly unique rolling stock and has very friendly staff. The train rides are surprisingly cheap and, for 10 dollars, you get unlimited rides behind an old EMD SW1. Please keep this place alive; they deserve to keep running for years to come.
  • Disappointed that to do family pictures here they wanted to charge $3 per person, but yet only one train was accessible that day. Not worth the money if nearly everything was unaccessible. Might be worth it if everything was open.
  • $10 per person but with unlimited rides all day. 15 minute trade ride. Conductor was very passionate about sharing railroad history.
  • My toddler loved this, you go back and forth when you ride the train but it was perfect for his age and he loved walking around seeing the trains
