Very nice and well-maintained display of vehicles from the past depicting how they shaped our current automotive industry. There is also a beautiful collection of trains from the past. The miniture train ride is a must do.

Very fun place to visit for the kids. However a little more expensive than expected, did not expect the adults to be charged for the emagination station, so just be aware of that charge. Even with that we had a great time.

This was a great addition to our St. Louis trip. This is a must see step back in transportation history. We had a great time and enjoyed all of the attractions.

Actually, even if you don't love trains, you will by the time you leave. Lots of historic train engines, cars, and trolleys. And they have free tours. It's definitely well worth going out and spending the afternoon.

Response from Steve H | Reviewed this property |
The entire museum can be easily seen within a four hour time span. If you take your time, of course, it can last longer.
How long should I plan for this museum? I have two kids, 8 and 13. We are trying to see as much as we can in just one day in the city. Thanks!
