“If you like choo choos, you'll love this!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

This is a great place if you love trains....and even if you don't. The museum is set up to be interactive. You get to touch and enter many trains. The volunteers there are wonderful. They're all very knowledgable regarding the history of railroads and trains.

“Meh.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

Just cool to see once but I have had to go there so many times it almost puts me to sleep now. Nothing new to ever see in here.

“Very Nice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

They have everything that has to do with the railroads here. Some very old and very big steam engines. They have old dinnig and sleeping cars from the 1800s and it gives you an idea of how the people dressed and traveled in those days. Most of all after you pay the admission charge it doesn't cost anything to walk around and look at all the exhibits. You could spend hours doing so. This is worth the time and money to go see. It is a window into the past.

This is definitely a great place to go. I love the Railroad Museum and usually take any company from out of town to the Railroad Museum. A must see. I never tire of going.
