Medina Railroad Museum Reviews
This is a lovely place to spend a couple of hours on a rainy day. It is great for kids who like to look at things, especially model trains... If your kids are into running around and touching stuff more than it probably isn't the place for you. The train layout is huge and detailed and great for kids who like to let their imaginations run wild with them. It's often very quiet there, terrific for kids with sensory needs and possibly with focused interests on trains or things with wheels if they are on the autism spectrum.
Great place to take kids for an afternoon. The train ride is a relaxing fun experience through the countryside, passing through various rural communities. The museum itself has an excellent miniature train model scenery/landscape, the largest I've ever seen. A lot of time had been put into making this a spectacular masterpiece. It's over 200 feet long, and has 2 sides to it for be seen from. I could spend an afternoon here just to see the miniature setup.
