  • Great place! We visited on a Saturday morning, we had the whole place to ourselves. The staff gave our kid a plush toy to take home with her, and the kids play area kept our little one entertained for awhile. There is ton of historical stuff displayed throughout the train, and there is a fabulous model train display.
  • We were looking for a train museum to bring our son to during our vacation & found this online. What we didn't realize was the museum was an actual train! Our son is a train enthusiast & loved going into all the cars, the engine & the tender. He also enjoyed the model train layout. The staff was very friendly & knowledgeable. Toby the mascot dachshund was adorable & continued through the tour with us. They have train books, magazines & DVDs to take. My son chose a series of Lionel DVDs which was missing one & Diane very nicely offered to send it to him if she has it. We spent about an hour but the staff encouraged us to stay longer if we wanted. It was an interesting change of pace instead of the usual type of train museums.
