There were four generations of us visiting this wonderful museum yesterday and we all were quite impressed with it. The five adults all thought it was great and our little 3 year old grandson had a great time with all the hands one fun toys. We spent two hours there and could have spent much longer. We definitely would recommend... More

This museum is for all age groups. It is packed full of toys from every era. The train displays are impressive. Upon visiting the museum I thought we would only be there a brief amount of time. That brief amount of time turned into hours of laughs and memories.

We felt this was not worth the time nor the admission fee. Maybe we were expecting too much. This "museum" contains rooms of "organized" old stuff, much of it not in good condition, and most of it behind glass on constructed shelves. We have experienced much better train layouts with more realistic scenery. Save your money and time for the... More

Numerous toy and train collections, especially from years ago. It reminded me of when I was growing up in the 50's. Kids will love it.

This is a definite place to visit for those who collect old toys or just want to reminisce. The museum has done an excellent job displaying the toys by category. Games, miniatures, dolls, trains, transportation, etc. are neatly shown in the different classrooms of the old elementary school building. What impressed me the most was the play areas in each...

The Train and Toy Museum at Kruger and National Road is an interesting escape into the 30s-60s! There are many displays of toys that many baby boomers will remember. The architecture of the old school and the intricate design inside of this old building is worth a stop! The gift shop offers many choices of educational items at reasonable prices!... More

An old school building housing many antic toys and two train layouts. We really enjoying finding the toys we used as children and those we had purchased for our own children.

We were in Wheeling for another event, and had some time to go off the beaten path, so to speak. We didn't have kids with us, so almost didn't go. But wow am I glad we did. This is one of the most fun collections we have ever seen! The schoolhouse in itself was fascinating, Each classroom has a theme,... More

This is a great museum for bringing back childhood memories. The location of the museum was an attraction in itself, an old schoolhouse. Each room had a collection of toys. You could see the blackboard of the room and just imagine a room full of students. I loved looking at the dolls and dollhouses. They don't make them like that... More
