  • I was wasting time while on a flight delay in San Antonio, when I happened on the museum. Even though it was sprinkling, I forked over the $8 to walk around. I thought it was kind of fun, my Grandfath...  read more »

  • This place is neat but not very big. We just wanted to check it out. If you have an hour to an hour and a half you can see everything and ride the train. It costs $8 per adult to get in. They offer di...  read more »
  • Great place for kids, or anyone who loves trains. Has a large train that does rides a few times a day, some to climb on/wall through, and some very impressive model railroads. It's a great place for kids' birthday parties too. They do special decorations for Christmas. It's a good place to take the kids to see Santa.
  • waste of money and time! I put one star because I had to rate this dump to leave a review. I wouldn't even give this place a half of a star! They have model trains that you used to be able to operate with joysticks, now they yell at you and your children for touching them. Your better off going to Morgan's wonderland or Landa park to ride a train. Train ride was about 2 minutes long and it just goes forward and backwards. I would not send my worst enemy to this place! $24 for my wife, our two children and myself and my kids would of had more fun at the park for free.
  • A work lovingly in progress. What a great spirit the place has.
  • I took my wife and three boys there. It was great. I wish that the train trip were longer, but we went on two or three times (depending on the person). They invited us to ride a firetruck, even to go to an area or two where they were setting things up. We left for lunch, then came back. There were lots of train sets inside, and three outside. There was a running USAF train engine, and the train that we rode, plus old carriages and cars inside. The workers were friendly and pro-active, and knowledgeable.
  • I like this place. It is sad that their funding is so low but the volunteers do their very best with resources at hand. Thank you for keeping some heritage alive as many have become too busy and arrogant to enjoy it. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!
