I have been to other museums that feature transportation and they range from quite good to very bad. Sadly, this one falls into the poor end of the spectrum. It was dirty, not kept up and sounds better than it really is. Not surprised that...More

Was a little disappointed. My feet were freezing the entire trip. Thought there would be Christmas Music. The Santa was awesome! Hot chocolate was very good! May try again next year.

I took my grandchildren on the Christmas train with Santa and Mrs. Clause. The refreshments served on board were very appropriate for the time of year. They didn't enjoy the story so much before the train ride.
