Took my son here and he enjoyed himself. It was a little too hot for him at the end. They have a lot of antique trains, buses, and a few autos. If the little ones are into trains or buses this is the place to go. Volunteers help out a lot so check to make sure they are fully staffed the day you want to visit. This will ensure access to all the exhibits and rides. Don't expect pristine condition on the exhibits but any that are open are all safe to walk through.
