This place is great for children to learn all about trains and the volunteers love to speak to them about it. They are great with kids and keep them entertained. They had a little area upstairs that the kids can play with toy trains themselves....More

Had a trip out to this place whilst in Florida. Nice small museum in Winter Garden although there are no loco's just lots of small items and memorabilia. It is small and free,, with donations accepted, and staffed by friendly volunteers

Hard to beat free! The guided tour was very interesting! The kids enjoyed trying out the RR tail cart and the telegraph system. Educational for all ages with great exhibits.
