  • Fantastic boneyard outside for the trains and a great automotive section indoors. Loved the area dedicated to busses too.

  • This is a great way to kill a couple hours or more if weather prevents you from doing more outdoor activities. The museum has a nice mixture of different types of transportation on display, but not a lot of each. They have real planes, trains, and automobiles on display here just not a lot. What they do have is very interesting and unique. The model ships and boats are exceptional and displayed well for everyone to see. There‚Äôs a simulation plane that you climb in the cabin, sit, and look around. The rail yard is really impressive with 3 locomotives that you can go out and look at if you choose. The automobile inventory, thought limited, is still impressive and worth checking out.
  • Really fun museum. It seems to be geared more towards kids, but I enjoyed seeing the old cars and trains anyway. Really liked the few trains that they had built up a little entrance so you could go inside of them. The caboose was a really neat example of that. Ticket price is a little high for what it is, but then it can't be cheap to run such a museum.
