Train ride was fun it took you through miniature villages of old Florida and displayed the population back in the 50's. Sure a lot more folks here now. The museum although small was quite interesting.

Stopping into this museum while you await the train ride at Lakes Park is great. There's a small train running around the top of the walls and some good memorabilia of trains with a small gift shop.
