Awesome! Unbelieveable museum and operating model railroad; just like the real thing running outside their front door.

Great for kids and adults. Large scale working train models with lots of towns, switchyards, mountains, lakes, tunnels. You walk above and at train level. Especially fun is looking for the stray dinosaurs.

We spent a couple hours here! Ask for the kids find guide it's fun for adults too! Really made us take time and look at the displays. Trains running all throughout the displays. Very detailed scenes. Many train enthusiasts. Great time.

If you have time it's definitely a must see if you have any interesting trains or toy trains. The details are incredible. It is definitely not just for kids.

Our little railroad museum is just so fun!! You can expect to spend maybe an hour or two here but our children just love it and I've got all kinds of different scavenger hunt you can do. We especially like when they have Star Wars day.

Finally a museum where there are actual TRAINS.....running!! and more than one!!! I was tired of museums where the kids asked "Why aren't the trains moving?" Even though my 4 year old was a little too short still, if we went upstairs on the 'catwalk', he loved looking down on everything. And Bar None, the best set of Thomas &Co.... More

I went with a friend and family, all together there was 12 of us. You walk in and they hand you a scavenger hunt for the kids and a map. The sights sounds smells and hands on activities are great. They kids found the dinosaurs and kept at it till their cards were filled. Well worth a visit if you... More

Awesome experience and I don't even collect or play with trains. Give yourself an hour, maybe two to fully appreciate all the intricacy that went into this working museum staffed by volunteer collectors and enthusiasts. You'll be glad you did.
