Intersting place, antiques from history, be sure to read the history city sign as you walk up. There is a minituare train display but it is not open every day so be sure to call ahead

SUCH a sweet place, and so off the beaten path, you just might miss it but if you are near Gulf Shores, it's worth the 20 min or so drive up to Foley to see. The only tricky part is that they have odd hours...More

Nice little train depot to go on big trains and watch the many model trains on display inside. The volunteers love to talk about their experiences and the train towns depicted. The train ride around the park is a favorite of our granddaughter too.

It is located in Heritage Park, a beautiful place in it's self. The Museum is fun and free, an entire full size locomotive is located outside.

Took our 3 children(8,6 &4). They were all interested in the trains. The gentlemen there that run them were great with interacting with them and explained things very well. It was a great experience for us all!
