  • We have traveled over many states and visited many train exhibits. My husband is a train buff. This was the most informative. Entertaining from young to old. Showing history from beginning to end and facts of all kinds....loved it. A must to visit.
  • We live about an hour away in Northern Kentucky. We have annual passes because they pay for themselves after two visits. We always make it up at least 4 or 5 times per year. They have an AMAZING set up for Christmas in July, Halloween and Christmas. They normally have a great promotion for the start of the football season and the Reds Opening Day.
  • I visited this attraction yesterday and was pretty amazed by it. Its name is special as "EnterTRAINment" is the combination of "entertainment" and "TRAIN". The displays indoor are fairly vivid under the craftsman's talents. Trains, automobiles, buildings with nature manifest a perfect microscopic man made scenery. In addition to the simulations of trains' operations. Sections of correlated knowledge, which are considered as the museum, is also provided inside. Overally, the amusement display is followed by the development/history of trains/railways.
  • Very fun for the kids, and the model trains and scene are very impessive. There is a pretty big indoor playground, a few rides and other things, wooden train sets to play with, and every model train scene has a list of things to look for, which my girls loved (that was probably their favorite part). Never could find any dinosaurs! My only complaint would be that it seemed a bit over-priced at $14 for adults, $10 for kids (if you buy online ahead of time, otherwise its more) but they happened to be doing a two-for-one deal when we went, so that helped. Still, compared to the other indoor option we were considering, Newport Aquarium, this is much cheaper. Keep in mind in winter and early spring some things are only open on weekends, so check the website.
  • LOVE IT!! My boys absolutely loves trains and they loved every minute of the junction.
