  • There were a lot of cool things to see but the gift shop didn't have very many options and wasn't very affordable either (also the price go go in is kind of ridiculous considering what you're getting, $5 for a 3 year old, and $5 for retired military but active military and their family is free, while it's $8 for adults and $18 for a conventional family). Also there was no toilet paper in any of the female stalls, and the paper towels were in a basket in front of the entrance instead actually within reach of the sinks. The handicap access to the train exhibit was also shut down, which sucked for those who couldn't use the stairs, but the train itself had a musty, dank, mildew smell to it (which I just chalked up to age).
  • Expect to spend a couple hours at the museum. Best to visit when it is not raining, as most of the stuff is outdoors. Trains, tractors, planes, boats, snow machines... the list goes on. For all ages Toddler to Elderly.
