This is a great museum for the train-loving family. Mine is one of those, but I'm not as big a fan as the others. Anyway, very informative and fascinating.

i took my nephew here since he's a big train buff and we spent a few hours here we did not rush as you were able to walk thru some of the train cars inside and outside. We didnt get to have a train tour since they dont offer that until may, that was a slight disappointment.

The museum is nice, there is a lot for adults and bigger kids to read and learn. There are many trains and engines to explore and visit. It's fun to see the different Pullman and sleeping cars, very different than traveling on a modern airplane! I thought admission was a little steep. We visited the weekend before Easter for the...

Went to the museum on a Friday and had the museum to ourselves to read, view and appreciate the history. My sister and especially enjoyed the Pullman exhibit. We left the museum with plans to take a trip on the current Pullman offerings. Definitely recommend.

Our visit was over a year ago, but we remember it well. There is much to see, both indoor and outside. Tons of rolling stock and many locomotive, both steam and diesel. Also many other transportation artifacts as well, including many dioramas and a cool model railroad. The Holy Grail, though, the Union Pacific Big Boy 4-8-8-4 displayed indoors. It's... More

To be able to climb on real trains and engines under cover should not be missed. Wonderful information to learn about the history of railroad and its contribution to our country's growth. Excellent way to realize why railroad is still wonderful way to travel and should be upgraded for 21st centruy

We really enjoyed our visit here. Took our son and we all enjoyed seeing all of trains on the property. cool that we could actually go inside of some and get the feel of what it was like for the people that actually traveled on them.

Visited when in town a few days this autumn. Spent most of a Saturday here. The trainride around the grounds is kind of cheesy, but they do have a number of locomotives that are pretty cool to discover in the shed. One of the better train museums out there, but I don't think it's better than Museum of Transport in... More

I can only speak of the experience we had for the Polar Express and it was incredible! The kids that we had with us (9, 6, and 3) all loved it and had a great time! It all starts out with a welcome and hot chocolate and while you're enjoying your hot chocolate, you get to listen to a reading... More

Drove two hours from milwaukee to see this train wreck. I'm sure it's a great train museum, but didn't get to see much in the 15 minutes between the time the doors were opened and the show began. The reading was fine, but the train ride to the North Pole was a joke. Who knew the only thing between here... More
