  • A really wonderful place to go to a railroad museum and really see some neat trains and some operating equipment sometimes
  • A must see for any Pennsy railfan. A brief and concise history of Altoona and the Altoona Works. The model railroad on the third floor is amazing and lets you feel Altoona of the mid-20th Century. It would be a blessing if more monies were found for restoring all of the locomotives and rolling stock on display. Sadly, the merchandise selection in the gift shop is somewhat limited. Average time in the museum with a leisurely pace should be about 2.5 hours.
