  • My son loves trains so this was a great little excursion. It seems the museum is temporarily housed in a trailer as renovations are happening. Still had a small children's play area and shop. You go on a short trip and get off in a picturesque spot near the sea wall for photos. Really nice & funny tour guide on the train.
  • Is amazing view of the water and so much info giving about the area and history. You can also ride it all day long with the ticket. Kids will have amazing time !!! Must visit !!
