Great museum, with other museums in the same building. There are trains outside and a large model train display inside, plus information on history of Union Pacific in the area. Signage could be improved, but well worth the trip.

This is a must see for the train lover there are "real" trains outside and a beautiful model train layout inside the building as well as many artifacts. $4 is a very low price for what is included - as well as several other museums!

Nice and large! The four go together well with the train and arms being the largest exhibits. Spent a good 2-3hrs with my wife and had an enjoyable time. Available wheelchair was much appreciated!
