This is a great short stop for the kids. Nice museum, and a small train to ride. Very low cost to ride it.

Very nice place. No fee to visit. They just have a donation box. This is a must for railroad enthusiasts. Open daily from 10-2 during the week and 10-4 on weekends during spring, summer, and fall months. On weekends train rides are given on a small replica train for only $1. Great for the kiddis.

Outdoor narrow gage 'real train' ride for children and elaborate model railroad and history inside. I could say more but I can't go back to my original summary of the Fenway Hotel where I commented a lot on this Museum and bike rental.

It was a nice hour and the entrance fee was only a dollar. The kids loved it and so did the adults. A nice find for a lazy afternoon of sight seeing.

This is a very cute museum, they even have a little train that kids can ride on during weekend hours for $1.00. I have 3 boys and my kids just love trains and visiting this museum.
