Great place for adults and kids . My 23 year old daughter went with a friend to take his son. She isn't a train lover and she enjoyed it .

We loved the underground reconstruction of the railroad station and the village town of the times past. Lots of objects to see and discuss as a family. The trains are well preserved and provides lots of in-period settings to allow visits to get a sense of the past. Well done!

If you are a railroad buff, don't miss this. Old engines, cars and memorabilia. Also an excursion train along the lake.

If you or someone in your group loves trains you must stop here. We stop here every year so our son can climb on the trains, play at the train tables and watch the model trains. I think you need to like trains or history to go here.

A great place for kids of all ages to explore. Make plans to take a train ride up the North Shore in the Fall!

Lots of fun kids activities. Many historic trains and simulated town. Wish we could see a sleeping car, but did see a dining car. Will be back to check out the many types of train rides they offer, but in September or October when the leaves are at peak.
