It was a great experience! We really enjoyed our visit here. Kids had lots of fun and the train ride was just a memorable experience. We highly recommend visiting this place for anyone who’s looking to have some family fun time together. Kids or adults I’m sure everyone will have an amazing time. And for the very competitive admission fee you’ll be hard-pressed not to visit this museum. I was genuinely shocked seeing their relatively low prices. It’s amazing how in this day and age such fees still exist. We probably spent more money on gas to come here than we did for our 4 tickets (our little one who’s under 3 years of age had a free entry). I’m sure we’ll be back here again very soon. 😊
My kids and I had a great time. We didn't know what to expect but happen to see the signs for the museum when driving by so we decided to check it out. I'm glad we did. My kids loved the train ride. I think more activities, maybe a train themed playground or things to see at the destination station would make it a better experience for the younger kids.
