  • I attended the first annual Rails & Ales brewfest at the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania, and by far, the museum is one of the best locations to have a festival. The beauty of the event is the venue. ...  more »
  • The Family Membership is completely worth it. This was my go-to spot for rainy days and out of town visitors. Great room to entertain toddlers and elementary ages. 
  • They have an extensive (100,000 square feet) collection of REAL trains. You can even walk through some of the trains with a representative that will tell you about the particular train car.

  • Took our kids and parents here. They have a great place for the kids to build and play with toy trains. Also have an amazing amount of old trains for all the train aficionados. My father-in-law loves trains and spent many hours here seeing all the trains he loves. Stop in for some fun.
  • My 12 yr old son LOVED this! Museum is well thought out and nice. Gift shop has a nice selection of collectibles but could use some more apparel type items. Price is a bit high, but worth it to see the vast selection of trains!
  • Nice place. The kids loved it! Educational and fun. I went there for the first time this year. I went with my kids and one of my kid's friends. They all loved it. My only problem were those little tinny hand trains for small kids. If you want to have your child ride them, it cost 5 bucks. I was thinking no more than a dollar to ride those tiny things! But I forked out the money because I promised she could. They are really only made for tots 5 years and under.
  • Wonderful museum with nice exhibits and steam train ride. Even has boxcars and a train you can walk around in. Expect about three hours for entire visit.
  • A great family outing. This is a really nice museum. It is even open on Sundays. It has a nice kids play center with toy trains.
