My husband is a train enthusiast in his late 60s, and he got a real kick out of the Railroad Museum of South Florida. Located at Lakes Park, it's a perfect switch from walking through the park or watching the kids on the splash pads or the playground. The kids loved the mini steam engine. (My husband and I really enjoyed it, too!) For just a few bucks, this is a great way to escape the beaches and do something a bit out of the ordinary. And at the time we went, it was only $5.

Took our grandchild ( 3 years) on the train - he loved it. Interesting commentary by the conductor. 15 minutes - $5 not bad

The museum with model railroad layouts was ok, bit small, but free. Was disappointed that the train ride did not use live steam engines. Nice adjacent playgrounds for children.

There is not a heck of a lot of things to do with small children. This place rocks. You can rent bikes, boats and take train rides. Nice gardens. Good place for a picnic.
