I really wanted to like this museum, and they do have a few nice attractions, but it all seemed like a work in progress. The restored Duluth Ga. railroad station is a very nice, well done exhibit. The collection itself is very diverse, although very little of it is what I would call restored, again, getting back to the work... More

Indoor/outdoor museum with nice collection of locomotives and rail cars from different eras. You're free to wander the grounds, which are essentially an old railroad siding and climb on the locomotives and wander through the cars. They have an old rail car that you can ride as well. Altogether a nice afternoon outing

If you are in the Duluth area this museum is a must see, especially if you have kids with you. Many trains are restored and most you can walk through and get a great understanding of train travel in the last 100 years. Staffed by friendly volunteers.

We attended a birthday party for a young family member and didn't really know what to expect. The young girls and boys had a great time with the party taking place in a rail car. There was a museum that had all types of toy trains being run by the volunteers who work at the attraction. The day ended with... More

Fun and different activity for children and train enthusiasts of all ages. We take our grandchildren every year for the Polar Express event and they (we) love it. It's great to walk through the old trains and imagine travel in years gone by. The train ride outdoors is something that the kids really enjoy! Great value for the money.

When I first arrived to this Train Museum I had no idea what a great treat and pleasure and learning experience this Museum would offer. I have never in all of my life been able to be so up front and personal with getting on and off of real Nostalgic Trains that were left as they were from the last... More

If you got a small kid, that is great to pass 1-2 hr's in this small museum is they like trains. Also include the short train ride, was the best part of the visit.

Much better than anticipated. Lots of train cars to enter, plus a full size and small one to ride as well. Excellent ( well air-conditioned!!) museum within larger building. We would go back - especially for one of many special events.

Nice place to stop if you happen to be passing by. Not worth a trip. Very small, bare-bones building with a little of the past attached.
