We went on a Sunday and spent a total of about 5 hours. We used a Groupon which saved us about 50% off the normal admission price. There is a lot of history here which made this a fun outing for all of the family. I will say that there is a lot of train related displays, maybe go so... More

A little disappointed that more train cars were not open to the public to walk through. Since we were in St Louis we went. Wouldn't go back again. The trolley car was shutting down around 2:30 the day we were there so we didn't get to ride.

I've always been partial to this place, growing up pretty much right next door. As a girl, I've spent many weekends with my parents and older relatives just walking and playing on the old trains. Always been one to use my imagination, I used to pretend that I was in an old movie, riding those old trains into the moonlit... More

This was a great train museum with lots of different engines and rail cars. My son (8) loved teh Big Boy and also getting to see inside a dining car and sleeping car. There was also a nice collection of classic cars and a miniature car display for the auto fans.

Interesting if you like to see the history of the rails. From beginning to late 1900's. Wish It had a bigger and better small train layout. I.e miniature trains. A place to visit pretty much for serious steam engine buffs.

If you like trains and cars, you will love this museum. We spent a couple hours and the boys had a great time. We toured the inside of a train. The tour guide was very informative. They had a small train that went around the grounds.

My 9-year-old and I have been coming here for the past three years. We love it. There is constantly Groupons available, but the price is very reasonable. There are displays inside the main building that are always rotating out. The three I remember most are a classic minature car display with the Mystery Machine, the Delorian, the Munster's vehicle and... More

The Museum of Transportation is a great place to take the kids or any train fan. They have a small train that takes you around on the track twice. They also have a tram train that can take you to the top of the hill where all of the trains are. They have several trains that you can climb in... More

My three and a half year old grandson loves this museum. There are lots of trains to see as well as cars and a couple of airplanes. Grab a brat in the snack shop....great prices. He especially loves climbing on the old trains and exploring. The Creation Station offers a great play area. You can't leave without riding the little... More

Took our two year old grandson and he had a great time. Many trains to walk around in and check out. He loved riding the small train that went around the park. Car museum was also neat to check out. Used a groupon to save some money but it is reasonable even without it.
