  • My 6 year old grandson and I loved this museum! He liked walking through the caboose and climbing on the steam engines. It will be really nice when the outside part is complete. There are a lot of trains we did not get to see up-close, like the electric trains. The inside display was a lot of fun, but he wished there were more trains running.
  • This museum is a must see if one finds oneself in Frisco with some time off. There is a very detailed and intricate working railroad model complete with moving vehicles, towns and even a functional drive in movie theater. The only draw back is that the railyard out back isnt open every day.
