  • We brought four generations to see the Christmas night display. We enjoyed looking at all of the displays; the "Christmas" train was my personal favorite! The parking lot was crowded when we arrived, but there was enough parking for all, and the line to purchase tickets was efficient. Everyone was so friendly; they even borrowed my mother a walker to assist her. There were also chairs provided for those who wanted to sit back and take in the scenes. Thank you for providing a special holiday event for our family!
  • An amazing work of skill and passion that captures the wonder of a child in all of us. Interactive exhibits, details beyond description, and history of the might iron horses that build our amazing country. A great venue for all ages.
  • much nicer space then at bandana. Moore kid friendly displays kids can actually pay with. Still has the original layout from bandana. Minor changes to the original. This space makes the original layout look small.
  • I have not had a good museum both times I went to check out the museum in which the child I was with has been super excited. They were closed both times with a rude woman promptly telling us it’s closed. Her reaction to the museum being closed was nothing short of friendly. I don’t think I will be supporting or trying to support this business any longer which is unfortunate. When the child I’m with even notices her mood, it does not come off as very inviting.
  • Way more interactive then the last version of this museum. My kids had a blast. So much for them to touch and see. Overall would go again.

Where to stay in Saint Paul

Places to stay in St. Paul sit concentrated in the downtown area. The Lowertown Historic District, which includes some of the city's oldest buildings, makes a particularly attractive option. Hotels, guesthouses, and bed and breakfasts here can put you just steps from the Mississippi River, while the greater downtown area also offers apartment rentals and hostels. Staying downtown also puts you within walking distance of most of the city's prime attractions. Additionally, you'll find a handful of national-chain hotels on the east side of town near Interstate 494 / 694.
