Loved this museum! Great place to go for history on trains, with a focus on the Reading area. We were lucky to have Fred as our tour guide/historian for an outside tour of the train cars, full of wonderful information. Great for kids and adults and a very reasonable tour price.
Great museum, focused on Reading Railroad and it's influence on industrial development of the region it served. Friendly staff, outside yard tour, and inside exhibits. Check website for special events etc. A good way to spend a few hours of a weekend day.
