What a rest place for a wedding! My friend got married here and it was beautiful! The weather in April was perfect. It was fun to explore the trains! Seems like a great place to go before or after the zoo.

This event is all about the marketing. They make it look so enticing. Don’t waste your money. I feel so ripped off. Took my very excited children today and was so disappointed. There is no entertainment for the kids. Just 2 tables with tracks on...More

I would not go there just for it, but if you are in the area or going to the metro Zoo it is worth a visit. Interesting to see the President train and some of the oldies.

Found a Groupon for the museum and tried it out. I was pleasantly surprised by this museum. They have four different trains you could enter and explore. One train is the former presidential rail car. It’s a very relaxed open air museum. They play great...More
