  • Called day before, was told regular hours available. With over 2 hours to spare, was told I could get only 20 minutes cause they were closing early. The girl in the booth had a really bad attitude. I only had one chance to see the museum, before leaving town. If this is how I'm too be treated at this business, I will not be back, ever.
  • We had heard from friends about this museum and knew we would love it. We have a train-crazy 5 y.o. and we bought the family membership since we were planning on visiting Roanoke in the fall. And it worked out because we returned the next (mostly to watch the model trains). Beamer's 25 is a convenient place for lunch (walk-able from the museum). Also, if you drive electric. They have a charging station.
  • The exhibits were excellent. Plenty of hands on activities for younger people and interesting facts for older people. Good for the whole family.
  • Very interesting and easy on my wallet I've taken my 2 boys numerous times and they love it more each time
  • Very informative and beautiful classic cars. We went during Harry Potter's"Muggle Fest" where they claimed a train there was in likeness of the train at 9 3/4 that took young wizards to Hogwarts. It was just an old train with a crooked handwritten sign in front of it that said Hogwarts. I felt ripped off.
