  • The train models here are amazing. The level of detail in the trees and things they've made is impressive. Our young kids were entertained for hours here, watching the trains and playing in the kids playroom.
  • If you're fascinated by trains, you have to check this museum out. There are two rooms of trains, and a playroom for kids with train themed activities. The first train room, has one train. The model takes you from JCT to Cranberry, NC. The details are amazing!! There was a young man that walked around with us, giving us history of the different towns and trains. This was especially cool for my husband and I, because we're new to the area and love history. What makes the museum even better, is that it's free!! There are donation boxes set up, and I would highly recommend making a donation.
