I love trains and visited the museum while my wife was at the Quilt Museum. The nice lady behind the counter made me a cup of coffee. Not many other were there at the time so the very knowledgeable gentleman gave me a personal tour....More

We made a special trip to finally go through and the doors were locked. So I rate it poorly because they weren’t open at the time their advertisements and their door hours said. Disappointing!!More

Thank you for your feedback. We strive to give the best experience possible both with the historical education as well as the hands on opportunity with the simulator. Occasionally, when the museum visitorship is higher, it is harder to give everyone a full experience because...More

The train simulator is real cool! Well built and a guide is there to assist you. The museum has several artifacts and some interesting items you don’t see at every train museum. They have a large model train layout that is a work in progress....More

Love trains. Some of the displays need some work. The price was ok for what they had. Has potential once things are more complete. Fun to watch the layout run.More

Thanks for visiting our museum. Yes, some of our train layouts are not complete. We are a 100% volunteer run museum on a limited budget. We work on the layouts when we can. Additionally, we try to have our other exhibits in the best shape...More

A great staff, especially Kathy who kindly offered my elderly dog a big bowl of water. The docents were helpful in pointing out the most interesting exhibits.

It's a work in progress. I was disappointed because exhibits were sparse. They were building a new O Gauge lay out that should be very nice when complete.

This little museum packs a lot of train punch. It's a little disorganized but you get a nice sense of history. Definitely do the train driving simulator!

Being a model railroader, I was very interested in visiting this museum. I found several displays of interest, a motor car and a CTC board was especially interesting. Both of these items are no longer used on today's railroads. The station schedule board from Fulton,...More
