  • This is an awesome spot. We stumbled upon the Old Town Model Railroad museum after eating lunch in Old Town. Free admission, they just ask for a donation which I would encourage you to make. $5-10 is well worth it. Our 3 year old son could have spent hours in the train museum. He loved it and it was impressive how much detail everything had. You definitely need to check this place out next time you're in Old Town. Check out more on YouTube / Alex & Erika
  • This place is awesome. The guys that run it are EXTREMELY nice, very knowledgeable and it's all kept going by donations. So, there is no fee to check it out, but throwing a couple bucks in their donation bin is WELL worth it. My son LOVES it. They also have train related items for sale if you're a fan or collector. A must visit while walking about Old Town.
  • The trains are awesome as is the beautiful architecture ,landscaping,automobiles and people.The details are stunning.This is a visual smorgisburg.I was teleported back to when I was 4 years old building a train track with my dad.Thanks guys for bringing back memories I hadn't entertained for more then 40 years.
  • Very well done! There is so much to see here from the county fair in the small town to a very detailed big city complete with fireworks at the baseball game! My son and i loved it.
  • Great place to take the kids. We stop in here at least once a month. The staff always goes out of their way to show off the amazing collection of model trains. Love it here.
