This is a great place to take the kids when the weather isn't the best. Its fun to watch the trains and to check out the lego creations room. My grandson loved watching all the moving train scenery. Its all enclosed so you can get out of the weather especially when its really hot or cold and wet outside. They... More

The weekend of August 1st, 2015, my family took a mini trip to this area in Frederick, Maryland, and stopped in this really nice Train Model Museum. From the looks of the outside of the building, and in the Lobby, you won't think that you will see much because it is a small place, but you will be pleasantly surprised... More

Absolutely the place to go if you are in Frederick, Maryland!!! A must see for train garden enthusiast, and especially small children. They will LOVE it!!! You'll be happy you stopped! We've visited several times over the past two years with our grandsons (ages 3 AND 6) and they love it!. It is very affordable! Check their schedule on the... More

My kids have been here multiple times. They are 3 & 7. They beg to come here at least once a month. It does have minor changes each time we come and it might not be as exciting for adults, but my kids enjoy all the interactive buttons and the overload of toy trains. It really is amazing the amount... More

Neat place, amazing train layout done by a father and sons. I had no idea what to expect and saw a showroom with boxes of trains and games as I came in. But then I saw a sign beckoning me to the next room, which turned out to be enormous. All kinds of "O" gauge trains were running around the... More

if you are a kid or were ever a kid once, you'd better check this out. Make sure you have time for everyone to linger and look at all the diarama's from our youth. Press the buttons to make the trains go. Just sit and relax and soak it all in. Also a room of lego's set up. I think... More

It may not be the largest model train display in the world, but it is very big display. You got to see for yourself.

If you have a kid that is into cars and trains like mine is, you have to take him/her here. We visited on a Saturday around 3PM. It was not crowded at all. In fact, we just about had the place all to ourselves. Once beyond the lobby curtain and in the back you'll be treated to what one employee... More

I was a little disappointed in this museum. Don't get me wrong it was very fun to see but it was a little smelly inside. It needed a good cleaning. There was a fun scavenger hunt to do while inside, which was fun. Both for adults and children. There was a small side room with Lego trains and other things... More
