Monticello Railway Museum reviews
I had not been there in years and was pleasantly surprised that the train went into the quaint town of Monticello. The weather was great and the flat open car was available to ride on. more »
The Monticello Railway Museum is a gem of a working museum for those who love railroading. My grandson is 4 and loves all kinds of mechanical things. Worth a visit even if you have been there... more »
Great experience for the kids! We took our two little ones, and they loved seeing the sleeping cars and postal cars, and then really liked all the different cars you were able to ride on. Specifically, my 3 year old loved riding on the caboose! Getting to go into the engine house and see some of the other engines was a cool unexpected perk
A fun place for all ages that is just right. I took my 3 year old grandson. The ride is an hour including a 12 minute stop. The depot and train exhibits are wonderful for a glimpse to the past.
