“Model trains everywhere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

This one of the best, most complete displays of toy trains I have ever seen! I was amazed - everything from pre-war to present-day. Very well displayed and very informative.

“All Aboard!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

Cool train layouts and tons of old (and newer) trains dating back to the late 1800's. My 2 year old enjoyed pushing the buttons to activate trains and accessorries. He was so excited to see all of the trains. We spent about an hour there...I imagine a serious train collector would spend a few more hours.

“Excellent collection”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013 via mobile

Many many trains. Some operating layouts. A bit pricey, but nice visit. Building a larger 027 scale layout. More hands on would be great.

“Great Fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

After spending lots of time exploring the Lancaster area and all it has to offer we decided to check out the National Toy Train Museum in Strasburg. It was wonderful, especially if you are toy train lover! This place has every toy train and platform model you could ever want to see. The exhibits of trains past and current is amazing. The platform displays are even better. Each display allows you the options to start the trains so they run and also to start the accessories. There is also a toy train library on site and of course a gift shop. The cost is nominal for all you get to see and experience. While you are there be sure to check out the Red Caboose Motel which is next door. This is a MUST see. I've never stayed there BUT it is so unique you just have to see it and maybe even book a caboose for your next visit!

“Good museum and fair entry price”

Nice display of toy trains. Price to get in was reasonable. You can operate several of the trains by pushing various buttons. Great displays.
