  • Coming here you are going to see lots of toys from your childhood, maybe your parents and kids childhood too! There are toys young kids can play with to keep them busy while you look around the exhibits around the edges of the rooms. The train exhibits have fun set ups to keep kids busy as well, like "can you find the 15 dinosaurs". They now have a cat here, Loo, named after the famous railroad cat, and pinball machines that you can play for free / donation. This place has a very interesting collection: trains, Lego trains, dolls, and miniatures. The earliest toys I saw were from the 50's, but I likely missed some. There is also some history about China and real trains. You could come here and spend hours. My favorite area was the kinex roller coasters set up as a miniature exhibit.
  • This is not just fun for children. It is wonderful for adults as well. Lady at pay station was helpful. Exhibits werefin. Collections are awesome. Don't miss it. Even the gift shop has several unique gifts.
  • So much more then we expected. Very friendly staff. So much to see. They even have little plastic step ups for kids to carry around and use to help them see the train displays. Nice touch. Well done.
  • Outstanding experience! Fun for all ages. We will definitely come back.
  • I hoped for better exhibits but it was still a great time. We'll worth the price of admission. I would have liked to have seen more Marx playsets and space and robot toys. The collection of individual Marx miniatures was very good. I was unaware of the existence of the spicy "American Beauties" series.
