The moment you go into the Museum you can see the love and care they have taken to bring these Locomotives to their glory days. We had a lovely time so much so we ran out of time and did not get to go outside to the yard. And as the many reviewers have already said - If you love... More

For years this museum was a work in progress, though we always enjoyed our visits. For the past few years it has finally come to the point where it seems totally pulled together and it is now quite the showplace for trains of all kinds. If you have any appreciation for trains and especially the history of train travel, this... More

This museum has an incredible amount of fully restored vintage railroad equipment including all types of engines and rolling stock. It is very reasonably priced, has a very knowledgable volunteer staff that is really helpful. There is a train shed that is stunning in its' own right to house the indoor collection. There are clear descriptions of each piece of... More

My review will include only the steam engine powered train ride. The First Class train car was comfortable with velvet swivel chairs for seating, They offered beverage and snack service to ensure an even more comfortable ride. The train road out to Paradise, PA and came back the same route. There was no loop so the route was pretty short.... More

Frankly, I probably could spend two days at the museum. The Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania is a new, spacious facility that is both... More
