  • A proper museum with tons of exhibits and learning! The most exciting part is without a doubt the train yard and the 611 is nothing short of stunning! Wonderful friendly staff and a large collection of beautiful vehicles. There are FEW museums in the world like this one.
  • What a neat place! Old antique cars, bus information of old days, ships, planes and trains. Good value, you could spend 2 or more hours see it. We never realized how big those locomotives could be. Make sure you check out the 611 steam, from I believe 1951, 110 mph! I would have like to have learned some information on the new versions, horsepower, miles per hour. To do a comparison. Very interesting place of highly recommended it.
