Friends brought us here. They're toy train buffs. We are not. If you like toy trains, these people have just about every toy train in every size. I couldn't believe all the trains. They had a lot of working models. I say if your a train buff, this is the place for you.

Our son bonded with my father over trains when he was still a toddler, and this has become one of their favorite destinations whenever we visit the area. The collection of trains, the layouts and the hands-on stations have provided endless opportunities for them to share their love of trains, and they literally can spend hours there during each visit....

This excellent museum will take you back to childhood with elaborate, well designed displays of toy trains. I wondered how such a narrowly purposed museum could hold your attention but it was so well done it turned out to be easy. Trains are displayed from all eras from the invention of the train. Well worth the visit.

First time visiting this toy train museum. It was very nice. Loved seeing all the old toy trains on display. Also reasonably priced to get in. Don't forget to check out the Red Caboose Motel across from the museum. You can eat in a train car for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Really liked the many displays of trains. It could use more working displays as mentioned but the over all visit was great. Admission price is a good value.

I lot of love has been put into setting each toy train set. There is lots of information. This is not a large building. It has nice bathrooms, small gift small, and the things you can buy are not great. I loved this place and would recommend this to anyone!

I am a model train collector and this museum was worth going to. Located next to the Red Caboose Motel and not too far from the Strasburg Railroad, this museum houses a collection of model trains ranging from many scales including O gauge!!! My friend Grant, my father and I had a really good experience looking up close at the... More
