Awesome experience and I don't even collect or play with trains. Give yourself an hour, maybe two to fully appreciate all the intricacy that went into this working museum staffed by volunteer collectors and enthusiasts. You'll be glad you did.

They have a game for the kids where they need to search for items, that can take about an hour. There's plenty to see in a smaller place, about 7000-10000 square feet, a few hours should be enough time.
