Located at the site of the oldest railroad station in America, this museum traces the development of trains and features a huge collection of railroad memorabilia, a model railroad and an operating replica of the very first locomotive, The Tom Thumb, which was built here.

An amazing collection of railroading history. Excellent restorations...clever exhibits. Opportunities to ride, to climb aboard locomotives, to learn from volunteers and staff who are expert sources of knowledge and love to teach

I visited for a holiday party. This place can be completely transformed. There is an area for a dance floor and everything. They have all types of train shows here and it is a great place to take the kids.

So, we have been here twice - both times because we had friends in town with a son who is a train fanatic. He loved it the first time, so we went back a second. The first time we went was during the Christmas season...More

My family really enjoyed this museum. However, trying to find the area they do actual train rides wasn't easy and we didn't really find where to purchase the tickets. But still a good place to visit.
