  • We took our 2 grandsons to the recently moved Twin City Model Railroad Museum. It was a delight. The 4 year old was really exited to see the large layout with 4 trains running at once. The 1 1/2 year ...  more »
  • I took my son to the Railroad museum for a laid back day. We had fun exploring the huge display of miniaturized cities, mountains and lakes. 
  • My 4 year old grandson who is a big fan of time train and spent the morning at the Museum. We had a great time and really enjoyed the volume and variety of designs. Of course his favorite part was planned so that the train can run. A very enjoyable morning

  • 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!
  • Super friendly people there. They are all excited about trains and great with children.
  • Great history. Kids can be interactive too. My grandson loved it.
  • Fantastic model RR. Best model of the famous Stone Arch bridge ever! Always staffed by knowledgeable people willing to give individual attention. Highly recommend
  • 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.
