    It is an amazing place with about 10 different layouts but I did wish for more. It is located in a business park so can be challenging to find. It is not a really large area. They have a vintage model...  more »

    The museum has moved twice since I was last there. It's now in a commercial mall that's not very railroad looking. It's so business like that we almost passed it! The museum is now a combination of th...  more »

    My 3 year old son loves this place. They let the kids interact with the trains and exhibits quite a bit. The train tables set up in the back is his favorite place to hang out.

    This is a pic from the previous location (Bandana Square). I took my 4 year old nephew here back in 2010 and he loved it so much. It's a great place for kids and get them out of the house playing video games.

    This place is very cool. I have been a fan of Model trains since I was young and was looking forward to going here. I didn't know some of the sets were going to be interactive. With that being said, some of the interactive buttons didn't work. That's the reason I gave it a four out of five stars. I would STILL recommend this place for anyone who wants a fun afternoon with their kids. My kids loved it. The staff there is great. Very Friendly and love to talk trains. I got more information than I thought I would. Definitely going to return!!

    I like the new space, it is very open. All in one place. The kids loved that they could control some of the trains. Great place to visit.

    Great place to take kids that love trains. Especially night train exhibit during the holidays.

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.
