  • Great stop if you are in the Twin Cities! Nice space with lots to see. They offer lots of railroading memorabilia from over the years as well as different setups that will interest all ages. Staff is very nice; Rich was a great guy to talk to. Will definitely stop again!
  • I take my two kids here every now and then. They love the interactive displays and pushing all of the buttons to make the trains go. The details in the displays are fantastic and it’s incredible to think of all the hard work that goes into setting them up and maintaining them. Every time we go, there’s something new to see. Great for kids and adults. Every now and then something doesn’t work (likely from excited kids forgetting to not touch the displays) but that never bothered my kids. The hours are great and the price is reasonable considering it’s run entirely by volunteers. Amazing.
