I have taken small children to the museum and they have had a great time. It is a small town, cozy museum that will likely entertain tykes for an hour or 2.

A small very well arranged Museum off the beaten path. A young volunteer gave us a tour with great enthusiasm and pride. If you like RR history this a treasure trove of local info. A nice place for a break between San Diego and LAX.

This Museum is a fun place to take children to explore. Children can climb into the trains, watch railroad videos, and play with the train table! I hope you have a chuga-chuga-choo-choo time! :)

I was suprised at how much my kids enjoyed the novelty of sitting in a stationary train car and reading books. The size is just right for a place to stop when you have a few minutes to spare with the kids.
