  • If you like trains this is a great little place to check out. Staff were very engaging and knowledgeable..they definitely made our experience better. Learned a few things which is always good and finally got to go into a caboose that actually showed what it was like to work in one. The train layouts were amazing and allowed you to easily interact with them. All the people that have worked to create this museum should be very proud of what they have created!
  • We loved it! The only downside is that the walkways can get tight if you have a stroller, but the entire experience was great. Our little man loved it.
