  • We loved this museum! When we went it was about 99 degrees and it was empty since it was a weekday. There aren't that many trains but the trains there are so beautiful and the history behind each one was amazing to learn. It is free entrance and free parking. On the weekends you can ride do a 35min train ride. I forget how much it costs but it is not much. I am definitely coming back for the train ride on a weekend.
  • Had an awesome experience here couple years ago. We loved the ride on the open train. Very safe for everyone as long as parents monitor your children. Very educational and informative. Everyone is so nice and receive you with a smile. All the people volunteer their time and effort to make everyone's experience excellent. I plan on going back and taking the 2 new additions to the family and making new memorable moments. Thank you guys!
