  • Nice little museum with model train & train history. Fun train ride with a nice environment with miniature houses. Suitable for children but also we adults liked tågturen. Ice Cream Kiosk & the opportunity to rent pedal cars & Pedal Boats When the museum is located in a large park with a lake & many nice barbecue areas & walking paths.

  • The Railroad Museum of South Florida is located in the unique Lakes Park. It is only small, but finely prepared and conveys interesting information. Along with the museum there is a mini railway with a locomotive and lots of laundries, which is in high demand by children (including adults). She drives a long loop through Lakes Park with her passengers. The park offers a large number of picnic areas; It has a bike rental and also water playgrounds for the little visitors. There is a bouncy castle, a large children's playground and a real steam locomotive to marvel at. Lakes Park is a must for young and old!.

  • The museum is small but it’s very inexpensive. It’s only $5 dollars for adults and kids below 5. The price includes a 15 minute ride on a mini train around the park. The museum is a part of the lakes park which offers many outdoor activities like walking, water bicycling, bike riding, wildlife viewing, picking, barbecuing, playing on the playgrounds, etc. This is why I gave it a five star rating because it one of the nicest parks I have ever been to. The railroad museum has different operating hours than the park. The park closes at dusk.
  • Amazing place for kids and those who still have that spirit. Place close by 3:30.. so better rush. There is ample parking and enough picnic spots. They do have bike rental as well.
