  • I take my son here often and he loves it. They get to have a Thomas the train day where Thomas comes and gives rides to the kids. It’s best if you get a membership for the year. They have indoor trains and a nice play area for smaller children and a little store for souvenirs as well!!
  • Small and tucked away down by the water, this museum did not disappoint! Our son loves trains, our daughter is along for the ride, but everybody had a good time here. There's an actually train engine by the entrance and a caboose to climb around on. An entire room was filled with a model train metropolis. There were plenty of kid interactive opportunities and everything was very clean and well kept.
