We really like the combination of railroad equipment and automotive vehicles. Many have been lovingly restored, although some are in original condition since they were well preserved by their previous owners. if you're going to read some of the descriptions of the pieces of equipment, plan on 2 to 3 hours. Well worth the cost.

What an impressive collection! Cars, trains, bicycles, motorcycles, Victorian era clothes and toys. A *real* gem!

I spent an entire afternoon looking at all of the cars, motorcycles, bicycles, trains, and other vehicles that are packed into this museum. It was incredible to see all these pieces of transportation history! Each item had a very detailed description, and I witnessed several older gentlemen tidying up and rearranging any items that were askew, which shows how deeply... More

My husband and I visited. There was a variety of great historical transportation modes. We enjoyed all of it. We took quite a while to wander through and see the entire exhibit. We would recommend this to anyone who likes trains, planes, and automobiles!

WOW! You need to go here! They have a truly amazing collection of cars, trains, motorcycles, bicycles, and crazy stuff like an old travel trailer, a bus, and a trolley. Oh, and there's a Conestoga wagon, too. Really well done and informative. We only had about an hour and we managed to see it all. We could've stayed all day.

We only had a short time to spend here, but it was fun. We especially liked the luxury train car interiors and the dining car's kitchen, the unusual contraptions like the land/air/sea vehicle, and the rich leathers, hood ornaments, and high-end details on the antique Cadillacs. The photo op in the model T made great vacation shots too. Everyone was... More

They have a nice collection of classic automobiles and steam-era locomotives and stock. The kids would have liked more interactive exhibits, but it's a fun museum nonetheless.

This museum has quite a collection! From a Big Boy to Amelia Earhart's Automobile. We mainly came here for the Big Boy and the other trains, but the car exhibits were also amazing to us! They have props from the Narnia movie, and a Denver cable car. The gift shop has overpriced merchandise ($7 for a magnet) and I suspect... More

My 16 year old daughter and I visited this place for about 45 minutes because we got there right before closing. For us that was a fine amount of time. They offer AAA discounts and military and maybe one other type of discount. Purses and any bags must be put in a locker in which they give you a key... More

This completely enclosed (and air conditioned) museum was full of amazing trains, cars, bicycles, motorcycles and other forms of transportation. It was well worth the visit.
