We decided to visit this attraction based on overwhelmingly positive Google reviews as well as one of our kids love trains. For the cost, $8/adult, this is an extremely small museum. Upstairs they have a really cool model railroad set up, however, upon our arrival, a Saturday, there was no one available to run the trains. We understand the running of the model trains is dependent on volunteers, so would recommend calling ahead of time if you plan to visit to ensure you get to see them. We did like the chairs upstairs so you can watch trains that come through the rail yard. We were lucky to get to see one come through.
Explored everything but the paid part of the museum. Didn’t have time to pick my way through it. Happy to stop by and see one of the places and industries that helped build the west. A very impressive structure!
