See an array of model trains in action at Choo Choo Barn, home to a variety of tracks running through a recreated model of the local countryside. Head to the facility, housed in a classic Amish-style country barn, and marvel at 150 props and figures, all hand-built, as well as the 22 different trains that zip back and forth around the track. Look closely and you'll recognize many local landmarks in miniature form, including barns, railroad stations, and more. Don't miss watching the videos offered in the museum, which document the process of building the model trains. They will give you a bit more background information on the mechanisms at work.

  • Had a blast. My wife and I thought the neatest part was the fire truck putting out the fire. I also liked the scavenger hunt they give you to do as you walk through and check out the details. 
  • We went here after Day out with Thomas. Such nice people running it. Very friendly and informative. The train display is unbelievable. I can't imagine how much time and effort goes into something like that. It is great for kids and also very enjoyable for adults too.

  • Great for families! Our son is a train lover so we got the yearly pass. Located next to the Strasbourg rail road too!
  • Kids love this place, even adults will. Lots of small details, so pay attention. It's kinda small inside and it goes clockwise, so you have to wait for everyone to move around for you to proceed.
  • Great layout. Definitely worth the time. Detail is incredible.
