Took grandson who hadn't been in a few years. Loved looking at the trains, maps, manipulatives, and hearing the stories.

We've been to several railroad museums, and none of them seem to disappoint. This one, however, might top all of the others due to its historical values. We arrived when they opened at 9am, and were promptly greeted. Upon entering one of the docents spoke with us for about 15-20 minutes. Most of the trains on the grounds had been used by Paramount in a lot of movies. I think the most notable was the Inyo #22 engine that was used mainly by John Wayne. Another thing that was very neat to see was the actual rail car that carried the golden spike for the first transcontinental railroad May 10, 1869. Out back there is another building that housed numerous other engines and cars. This is definitely a must see, even if you don't like trains too much. Most of the visit is self guided, but there are docents there to give you a history of everything in the museum.

We decided to take our three grandsons for a day outing and could not have had a better time. The staff is extremely knowledgeable and willing to talk to everyone. The only disappointing part was we visited during the week and there were no train rides available; however, we plan to go back because the boys want "a train ride".

Lynn and I and friends recently spent a couple of hours at the Nevada State Railroad Museum. The West is popular for numerous railroad museums and this one is one of the best. There are 3 steam engines under one roof. They are in meticulous condition. As a matter of fact while we were there one of the volunteers was lovingly polishing the brass. There is an opportunity for a short ride on one of the unique trains as well. There are maps of rail routes on the floor that are quite interesting. Additionally there is a station and a large garage building housing even more trains that are in various stages of restoration...and an outside boneyard of derelict train cars awaiting restoration. The volunteers appear to be rail junkies and are quite knowledgeable. This museum was a favorite stop on this trip. Admission for adults was $8.00 which seems to be a favorite admission price for Nevada State run museums.
