Went on Sat afternoon. Unorganized building. No one greeted us. Signs about cats plus a cat tower IN the room. Random furniture. Office/library haphazardly kept. 2 ladies were seated on the far side of the room. Never looked up or said anything. No one was...More

My kids loved the friendly cats - Big Red, Flash, Charles, Duke .... just to name a few. That alone was worth the trip. We were at an event at convention center and this was close enough to kill some time.

When we came we missed the hours so we ended up walking around the property. Lots of interesting things to see - the tracks, the trolleys and buildings. It doesn’t look well maintained though (a reviewer commented that the place is staff by volunteers so...More

Interesting info about old trolleys, we got to ride in two different trolleys from different eras. The staff was very excited to teach about the trolleys and was very passionate about them.

This was cute. We're not entirely sure if we actually saw the museum or not, since the part we went into was a little sketchy. There was another building that looked like it had a gift shop, but we never made it that far before...More

Hard to find, lousy parking, not well maintained, trolley "ride" sat around for extended periods of time. Twenty- five minute ride was an unenjoyable 55 minutes long, but didn't want to get off and walk back to my car.
