I was planning on visiting this until I double checked their website where they say that they will reopen in a couple of years. I then called them to confirm and their outgoing message confirms this. Too bad as I was so looking forward to bringing my whole family there. I look forward to when they reopen!!

It took us a while to find the unassuming building, but we enjoyed the train set-ups - the grandkids enjoyed it, as well.

We took our boys and their grandfather to see this and they had a great time. My husband and his father enjoyed reminiscing about the model trains they had growing up and my boys were in awe of the set ups! It was heartwarming to see them together enjoying their visit so much. From age 75 to age 5, they... More

We came here with our train-loving 3 year old. Lovely spot to get away from the heat and satisfy our son's desire for trains. It was a really nice display with tons to look at. Love the kids train tables set up for the young ones to have hands on fun too. We will definitely return.

My son and husband loved the model trains. Lots to look at. Great way to spend a couple of hours on a rainy day.

It is little unknown spot. Once you find it you be amazed at what is inside. Children and adults alike will be speechless. This is one place to go for all train lover. It was a little bit warm inside the day we visited. It would be more comfortable with the A/C on cooler.

Happened by this place last year and finally made it this year. It is a great setup for young train fans - a couple extensive model train landscapes they turned on for us when we got there, including a few buttons to light up lights, etc. The real draw for my 2-year-old was the two train tables he got to...

A great little treasure that you shouldn't miss! It is off the beaten path and doesn't follow regular hours. If you catch it when it is open, it is well worth your time. Obviously a project of the heart.

My husband loves trains and has a large collection. This was ok, there were several layouts but my husband was disappointed that there wasn't any trains for sale.
