We took two toddlers here on a rainy day and had a great time. They both loved riding the train and the other activities were also great. Nothing too exciting but perfect for little ones. The setting is also very nice.

I think your daughter might get bored, there's not much to see for a girl that age, my 3 y old son is train mad, if he wasn't into trains we wouldn't even take him there.
