  • Nice interactive scale model layout with play area for the kids. The educational displays are interesting but the train cars are a bit tired looking. It might be a bit boring for those who are not train enthusiasts.
  • Perfect for lovers of trains. Great for kids
  • Wonderful museum. Fun large models
  • Unfortunately small, but most rail museums are. Great for enthusiasts.
  • Very good museum for anyone who likes trains and is interested in the history of railroads in North Carolina. Informative displays and interesting artifacts, plus a well-designed model train set-up.
