We went for the Fall Harvest Festival and were so excited but once we arrived it was all very underwhelming. If you have a small child gaga for trains I would go once but with low expectations. The fall festival was pretty non existent and the model trains weren’t working. I was expecting more food options and things for kids to do. My least favorite part was the surly conductors that were smoking right in front of the train. We had to endure cigarette smoke with small children and you couldn’t get away from the smell. Also, the train whistles are very loud! Bring headphones for sensitive ears.

We took our young grandson, visiting from out of state, to this museum today, promising him a great time. Alas, the museum was not open although we were there at 1:30 on a Sunday afternoon. A big disappointment for him. I know it is volunteer run and staffed and it is very hard to find people who are willing to take on this type of responsibility so I don't want to judge harshly. There are plenty of old trains to see and we did walk around and view them, so I can't say it was not worth our time to go there. I wish the museum group success and hope they find enough help in the future to open their museum at the scheduled times.

We took our 4 year old for a train ride and experience other activities and he absolutely loved it. The volunteer staff are so helpful, kind and understanding. We will surely be back and it was worth every cent we paid for our visit.

When my kid was young, we went to these tracks often. Just pass by today and bring back tons of fond memory.
