  • Not much there, but it is cute. Tell them if you are a veteran for a discount. the train ride is very short. Employees were nice.  more »
  • A fun experience at this museum. Loved hearing all of the history about the trains in the yard. Also enjoyed getting to explore inside of the steam engine. Definitely a fun place for children.  more »
  • Another is what it is venue. If you like trains you'll love it: old engines and cars, and plenty of people to answer questions. Hourly train rides and other interesting artifacts, like this train turntable. And you can enter interesting cars like a steam engine cab and a mail car. Call to check hours after 8/31.
  • We went to visit Uncle Sam. What fun! We have been to the museum on a previous visit which we enjoyed. There is something for everyone and we learned so much about the railroad history. It's good for all ages. There is some hands on stuff for the kids to do.
