The new addition to the village model showing the LIRR's transition from steam to diesel may have a way to go, but the original model is still worth the price of admission, particularly when you need a break from endless carousel rides. Generally open Sat...More

Seeing the inside of a real caboose and reading about it was fascinating. The rest was simply on railroad car of memorabilia. If you were really into the history of trains you might enjoy this but again, it is small.

With the additional of the multi-tiered, multi-tracked (8 different) tracks display from Lionel the museum has gone from very good to top-flight. It is enjoyable for all ages with some interactive opportunities that make it great for children.
