Numerous trains running through almost ever imaginable setting of mountains, rivers, towns, mining, industry and many other places. One can spend hours enjoying the settings based on real places in the northwest US. If someone is interested in model railroading you've got to see this.

My kids, 5 & 8, both really had fun looking for the hidden items and got a cool little toy at the end. The gift shop had some neat gifts also.

The main layout in the museum is in fact HO scale which is a 1:87 ratio. The museum also has an O scale and a G scale layout and we are working on a small N scale one that was recently donated.

They have a game for the kids where they need to search for items, that can take about an hour. There's plenty to see in a smaller place, about 7000-10000 square feet, a few hours should be enough time.
