At some point or another on most of my road trips I’ll head into a museum to check out cars, the Transportation Museum was going to be another such visit…I got a little education in trains whilst visiting (which also doubled the length of my planned visit) which I wasn’t expecting. And for the fairly modest entrance fee of $8... More

We arrived on a quiet October afternoon. There were only a few other cars in the lot. We did arrive in time for the last little train ride of the day and thoroughly enjoyed that experience. We watched them put the little engine "to bed" for the evening as we headed up the walk to the auto museum portion. What... More

Saw some reviews that were less than flattering, and always wondered if it would be worth it. Found the staff very friendly, and the volunteers VERY committed to train and trolley preservation!! Certainly if you are a train or car or trolley enthusiast, you will love it. But kids of all ages can find things to explore and enjoy.

If you like different types of transport - trams, cars, locomotives - all are here in a massive site. It really needs a fine day to appreciate it to the full. The day we visited was very damp and so we didn't go to the farthest areas of this hug site. What impressed me most was the enthusiasm of the... More

The staff are super friendly, Ms Linda in the creation station was very nice. Engineer Jean and engineer Wayne were very attentive to the passengers and the children. Sure it's a lot of walking, but the exercise and fresh air are good for you.

A very nice museum to check out while in St. Louis. The car portion of the museum isn't nearly as large as the collection in Nashville TN, but being able to check out all the Trains was Awesome!!

Trains, trains, and more trains. Kids had a blast. Quite a bit of walking, but tons of stuff to see. If it moves, they have it.

This is the one of the best collection of automobiles and trains anywhere. A real blast from the past and a great place for the whole family. Bring your comfortable shoes and cameras.
