  • Not just for kids. It's a short, 45-minute train ride along the water, which led us to find the trail/steps to the beautiful Eastern Promenade. $10 per adult and worth it. Small gift shop/museum.  more »
  • The museum and train ride make for a fun activity. We spent about an hour here total, the ride was ~30 minutes. The train ride was a fun way to take a break from walking and see the eastern promenade ...  more »
  • Love this little train taking you back in time along the eastern beach and promenade. For these weekends and into winter they have brought back the steam engine which frankly makes all the difference ...  more »

  • I LOVE this museum. Its small but packed with awesome information and amazing historic trains. I didn't get to ride on the train but will definitely go back for that another day. The tracks run alongside the walking trail and have excellent views! The only recommendation I will make is handicap access is difficult. Wheelchair can't easily get to it.
  • A lot of fun! We enjoyed poking around the interesting museum. And train ride is short (about 40 min round trip) but fun with a very friendly conductor and docent who gave us lots of local history. Definitely recommended!
  • Good fun for the whole family. You can ride the train and see the museum in less than two hours. All for $10 per person. Definitely worth doing!
  • Nice little museum and fun train ride. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Dog friendly!
  • Very fun to take small kids on. Also acouple of pokestops along the way.
