  • I grew up in Central Florida and never knew this place existed. I grabbed my sister and said “c’mon we’re going on an adventure.” It’s Old Florida and it’s a lot of fun. It’s not much to look at from ...  more »
  • The murder mystery was good and something different. Train ride isn’t all too scenic but still enjoyable. Dinner stop was good as well.  more »

  • We had a blast. The museum was neat and the train ride was very enjoyable. I suggest sitting in the open air train car, you'll get a better view.
  • My family and I enjoy going to the Florida Railroad Museum. We have gone 4 times and have always had a great time. The train ride is around 1.5 hours. You ride about 45 minutes one way and then stop at a little station. At the station there is all kinds of old railroad memorabilia and a bell for the kids to ring. After visiting the little station you head back to the museum. Along the ride you can get snacks/drinks. There is also a bathroom to use too. The staff walks around and talks to you too. Everyone is knowledgeable and really seems to love their job. Can't wait to go on another ride!
  • We 👫 had a great time on the train 🚂. We 👫 went when the hole in the head hang robbed it and had a blast. I would definitely recommend this experience to anyone. Go early 🌄 morning and stay all day. They even have a nice museum!
  • Great place to spend an afternoon. There are three main attractions here. The model train with vignettes of the 70s on and wonderfully painted and maintained. It closes at 2 o'Clock. The train itself is well maintained and you get to see how a railroad used to be run, how sidings and switches work. Pay attention to the caboose and the engines. The train ride is a nice little jaunt through the Florida jungle. The railway museum is set in a re-created century old train station that burnt down recently. The whole place has only 7 employees to maintain the equipment and run the store. The tours are given by volunteers and that makes all the difference. They dress the part to set the scene and engaged with all of us (3 year old to 65 year old). This is a passion project for them. For us, it was a relaxing afternoon and I would definitely recommend a visit or two.
  • Train ride was Great! It was an amazing experience for the price. I took my 22 month old grandson and he loved the model trains, full size train ride, museum & was entertained by all of it. I could do this every weekend.
