  • For anyone who likes trains and model railroads, this is well worth the visit! Huge display area with many layouts and friendly and informative hosts. Check it out! 
  • This museum has a great collection of working model trains. It is especially interesting to young children. I highly recommend you going for a visit, I am sure you will be glad you did. 
  • The reconstruction after the move is progressing well. A small dedicated group of volunteers are making some improvements as they go. There are new exhibits brought from the Toy Train Division Tons of...  read more »
  • We found this spot after a friend had heard out it and it was a phenomenal place to go hang out with our little guys. Located on the second floor of a relatively non-descript building, there lies a great place for your little guys/gals to check out some sweet train sets and play with a bunch of train toys that they may already have at home, but that seem more exciting because they're somewhere else! Upon entering, you're greeted by a very nice chap who points out the goings on in the, main room. Entry is $8 for adults and free for 3 and under, which currently works well for us. The train they have set up is rather impressive and takes up about 80% of the large room you enter into. Just after entering, they have three Thomas the train tables set up with more cars to play with than you can shake a stick at! There are plenty of Thomas sets for sale as well in case you don't have enough at home! After looking around in the main room you're directed to a large building across street that houses another 8 tracks and 3 more Thomas sets. A number of these sets are interactive and while they're primarily just making the trains go faster and slower, it's a nice change for the kiddos. The sets are pretty comprehensive and while I don't know much about model trains, the dudes here do and are excited about sharing their enthusiasm. Worth checking out for train enthusiasts young and old!
  • Great history. Kids can be interactive too. My grandson loved it.
  • Great for the whole family. We come every time we are in Minneapolis. 2 kids 3 and 6 and they LOVE it! Very catering to children.
  • Museum was nice and interesting but much smaller than I expected for some reason. Would be a great place to bring kids as they have multiple hands on exhibits as well.
  • Fantastic model RR. Best model of the famous Stone Arch bridge ever! Always staffed by knowledgeable people willing to give individual attention. Highly recommend
