This museum is filled with all different types of trains. Most of them you are not allowed to go into. They had a childrens section. The trains that were outside were the only ones you could climb onto. The parking was free.

This museum, an affiliate of the Smithsonian, is a first class attraction for all ages. The gorgeous roundhouse contains several train cars in mint condition, and there's additional rolling stock outside. Excellent displays in the special collections room. Small, but well-stocked, gift shop too.
