If you like Civil War history and trains like I do, this place is for you! I say that because some of the locomotives are Civil War era, there are also diesels and steam locomotives from the World War II era and pre-World War II era!.

The admission is $16. There are a lot of old engines on display and a 20 min train ride in a Pullman car ($3). There are 2 buildings with lots of engines and displays and lots of cars outside. The main building is an old Roundhouse complete with a turntable. The buildings are not AC & warm on a Hot... More

I visited this museum twice in twenty years with my kids. Each visit was very enjoyable and the museum appeals to kids of all ages. We really enjoyed it and would go again.

A definite stop here was incredible, as a guide showed me around to the historic, restored railroad cars. The roundhouse is a beautiful building and houses a great collection of railroad memorabilia. Well worth the time and easy paced.

Beautiful museum, wonderful exhibits for all ages. Short little ride on real train always a hit with the kids. Trains to climb on and explore and Thomas the Train section with play area and dress up section for small ones. Gift shop has some unique train items and the Lego exhibit every Christmas is fantastic.

This is a great place to bring the kids to see and learn about trains. The roundhouse is huge. Be sure to leave time to take the short train ride on part of the nation's first stretch of railroad.

It is impossible to see everything -- there is simply so much to see. It is a former railroaders delight. However, visiting just the roundhouse will awaken anyone's curiosity to learn more about railroads. I've gone just myself (with a very tolerant wife who brought something to read, but fell in love with the place) to younger grandchildren. All enjoyed... More
