    The train runs twice most Saturdays and Sundays (11:00 and 2:00) but call in advance to verify. All staff were very pleasant and seemed to enjoy their roles. The train is interesting, in that there ar...  more »

    Fun experience. Especially children will appreciate this. In 1 hour and 15 minutes driving back and forth with such a great American train. The whole is run by volunteers.

    We took the ride with two small children and we all loved it! It's an hour and a half ride with one brief stop at Willow Florida. You choose whether to ride in an open-window coach or in a closed, air...  more »

    I've been here for Thomas the Train Day before and that was a complete mob scene. The kids enjoy it but you'll empty your wallet out, especially if you have multiple kids. Off season, after all the snowbirds leave Florida, kids ride free with paying adults on certain days. They also have an old 1940s passenger train on display to walk through across from the souvenir train. There are a few other trains to look at from the outside Its pretty quiet and no one hassles you. Free to look!

    The place is great for onetime visit. We want on a hot day and the next train was over an hour wait. The only seating area are outside. Unless you want to wait in the shop/office which does not have seats. The train ride is quite and entertaining for kids. But very boring for adults. They need to have some music inside the train. Over all not bad if you don't have anything to do and have kids and trying to make them busy and entertained for few hours

    Fun for large or small groups. Model train display, sleeper car viewing and the gift shop are free. Train rides on weekends and special times offer fun and entertainment for all ages. Definitely worth visiting.

    Cool little model train set up that's fun to watch. Gift shop with some good stuff. Train brought us to a mini museum, takes about a minute to go through and back on the train. The train itself is a neat experience. Not all that exciting, more of a relaxing thing to do.

    Great museum; have gone the last 4 years they've hosted Thomas the Train and colleagues talk very highly about the Polar Express during the Holidays. Haven't been any other time, but the experience has been great. Plenty of grass-top parking with Manatee County Sheriff's more the helpful at directing vehicle and foot traffic. Staff is friendly and helpful.
