I'll admit, upon first entering the museum I was skeptical, but I came out very pleased with my time spent! They have some terrific rooms and stories from automobiles to bus to flight history in western Virginia. But the stand-out display is the outdoor area where there are MANY original and greatly historical trains you are allowed to walk through and explore! We had the pleasure of stumbling upon a gentleman who worked for the museum who gave an impromptu tour of the trains and cars for those who wished to listen. He did a terrific job and you can tell by his excitement that his knowledge and passion for trains were genuine and life-long. If you are looking for a Roanoke attraction that will cover 1-2 hours, this is your go-to museum, especially for anyone who loves planes, trains, and automobiles!
