Our extended family (ages 6-80) thoroughly enjoyed this museum. It is outdoors, so you can touch and take photos by the trains. Staff is knowledgeable and friendly. Be sure to ride the train - a highlight of our visit!

Being a railroad buff, I've been to many museums across the country. This is one fantastic railroad museum. Every tourist place in every ad says "the best"...this really is the best.

If you are a train enthusiast, this is a must visit this museum. You can walk about and look at the engines and take a short train ride with a tour guide and experience the turn table for the train!
