We like model trains and while we probably wouldn't have come here if we weren't expecting a lot of rain, we enjoyed the huge number of examples of cars and rail gauges, as well as the 7 or so working train setups. This is clearly...More

Impressive collection of trains and cars. Everyone there was very friendly. We did get the cautionary warning to keep our children near and that we were responsible for any damage. It's probably an hour activity at best. It's one of those things to check off...More

The gentleman inside the train museum was very nice. They have so many trains set up inside and you can press a button and actually watch the trains go around. Very cool to see what they had. 6$ a person was a little high of...More

Very large model train hobby shop, but the emphasis on European models left it somewhat useless for me. The model train museum was also strange. 10 operating layouts, push the button and a train will run for a minute or two, but in many cases...More

We stopped off partly because we were a bit early to go to Storyland, and it was raining. But my dad is a big model railway fan and he was impressed. He spent a while chatting to the owner, who has lived all over the...More

This is definitely an older attraction and the owner is trying to find someone to purchase the business so the displays reflect that. There is a ton in this place and he has been collecting for a long time! The displays are really intricate and...More

We spent a great morning at the museum. Our grandson enjoyed the interactive trains,especially Thomas! The staff were very friendly and answered all our questions. Only complaint was that there were no Canadian trains!

The last time we went into the museum a few years ago it was $5 for adults. The place is still open but up for sale so I would plan on going soon. The owner is very nice but has decided it is time to retire. Enjoy your... More

I don't believe they operate the little train during the winter months but in the summer, I think you can just purchase ride tickets but you might want to call. I have since learned that not all the employees are bad... More
