Lots of fun and educational

My kids loved the little train ride that comes included in the admission. Next, on to exploring different types of trains and playing with all things train related. It was really neat to see my kids enjoy learning about trains. Highly recommended

Don't let the outside deceive you...

From the outside, this place looks like a rundown building. But inside, there are many treasures to check out. I learned a great deal about transportation history. It's definitely worth a visit.

Great fun for Grandchildren & Grandpa.

Great activitiy for your grandchildren, especially younger ones. We visited on Train Day and they had caboose rides, but any visit will have enough to keep your grandchildren busy for 2-3 hours.

Great Place For Our Grandchildren.

Took our two grandchildren to this museum ages 7 & 12. They really enjoyed the interactive exhibits. We spent almost 3 hours wandering throughout the train cars and displays. We also got to tour the workshop where they were rebuilding train cars and locomotives.
