  • If you enjoy model trains, this is a must see! Kids will love the layout - much larger than most would expect. We spent two hours going through and could have spent much more time. Most of the...  more »

  • All of the small details put into the displays. Coney Island display brought back memories. Plus as a guest you have the ability to get up close to the displays.  more »

  • My son really loved seeing the huge indoor display of all the trains. The displays were set up into different eras and had appropriate trains and models for the era. There is a nice play area for children. There is a self powered train and a ride on Thomas train. There was also a carnival area which had a mirror maze and a few other mazes that were fun. The food was cheap and tasty. Employees were nice
  • Model trains aren’t much of my thing but I was actually pretty taken back by this place! My dad had taken me and I slightly knew what to expect but come to find out, not at all. The history and endless stories told by the scenes they had set up were astounding! The models are so well put together that the atmosphere of it all makes you feel like you’re living in those moments of history. There is so much to see as you walk through! I recommend it even if you’re not into model trains; the history you’ll see is worth it alone. It is great for all ages!
  • I've visited a couple model railroad museums over the years that stake their claim as being the largest in the country, but I challenge you to find one that is as realistic and filled with special effects as this one. Whomever designed and build this layout did a fantastic job. It's very detailed and worthy of a visit if you are in the Cincinnati area. Well worth the price!
  • This is such a fun place for all to enjoy. My toddler and my Dad both loved seeing all of the trains. They have train displays that span 150 years. There's an indoor playground to kids to get some energy out which is great on rainy days. The gift shops (there are two) were fun to shop through. There is also a space for traveling displays. There was a fun house section. They even had Santa in July. I can't say enough things about this place.
  • I do like the displays. I'm glad there were things my toddler son was able to do. They do have a toddler play area, then later a few small mazes. However, I was disappointed in the lack of sizes on display. We are now just getting into trains, and it would of been nice to see different scales of different displays.
