We stopped here after visiting Holmes Medical Museum and were so glad that we did. The model train exhibit was awesome and a wonderful way to spend some time. The volunteers are clearly enjoying the opportunity to show off their trains .

This place is precious!! The model train set is cool for children AND adults!! One staff member, Ernie, was such a joy to learn from! He knew the answer to any question we had and was so happy to talk with us!

SUCH a sweet place, and so off the beaten path, you just might miss it but if you are near Gulf Shores, it's worth the 20 min or so drive up to Foley to see. The only tricky part is that they have odd hours...More

Nice little train depot to go on big trains and watch the many model trains on display inside. The volunteers love to talk about their experiences and the train towns depicted. The train ride around the park is a favorite of our granddaughter too.
