We visited the railroad museum on a whim while visiting Miami New Year's Eve, Dec. 31, 2012.
We took our twin boys who are over 2.5 years old and the weather was perfect - not too hot, not too cold, with a nice warm breeze. There are lots to explore here. Lots of trains and tracks. You can walk around forever. There are some covered trains under the NAS hanger, and a separate 3rd buidling that has the toy electronic trains/tracks. This separate building has lots of wooden Thomas Train tables to play with. My boys did not want to leave this building. It was not crowded the day of our visit. We climbed up and down many trains. I loved the double decker train all the way in the back. It looks like they use this one for the Thomas Train Days. My kids loved pushing all the engineer buttons.
Bathroom facilities are fine. Be sure to wash hands and face before eating. There's a deck to eat. We only had ice cream snacks here. There is minimal food. My suggestion is bring your own lunch.
We did not explore the large, covered sand box, and we missed the kiddie train ride.
Admission price was right. Our kids were free, and with AAA card we only had to pay for 1 adult price.
