“Fun for everyone!”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

Just attended my grandson's 3rd birthday party here & it was great! There is a special car they use for parties so you can set up food/cake. Nothing fancy, just a place where the general public can't access. The museum is run by volunteers and they are all very knowledgeable. There are many old railway cars that you can walk through as well as buses, taxis, etc. from the era. You can also see track equipment, the inside of a depot, china from dining cars........ This is really worth the time, if you care about trains or history.

“not much for the price”
Reviewed August 22, 2012

we arrived with our grandson around 4.00 pm on a wednesday. cost for 2 seniors and a 2 year old... $17. seems like a lot sice the kiddy train wasn't operating, the gift shop closed at 4.30 and they closed up at 5.00. i wish someone had told us we didn't have much time and there was no kiddie train ride. some nice rolling stock, nice displays esp. the real china and silverware from delta, eastern and TWA from the 60's. overall, no big deal. i'd skip it.

“Bring the kids”
Reviewed July 2, 2012

If you like trains at all, you will love this gem. Run and maintained by volunteers, everyone was willing to provide information and answers to questions. Will take a little over an hour to see everything, got a short free train ride. Price was well worth the visit.

“Great Visit”
Reviewed June 25, 2012

Really enjoyed this, many ancient passenger cars you can walk through, several locomotives you can get into and even an operational model railroad. Excellent value.

“Perfect stop for yound and old”
Reviewed June 14, 2012

My son loves this museum and is asking when we can return. He is a huge train buff and will probably work for the railroad at some point in his life. All the volunteers are knowledgeable. Be sure to ride the caboose and seek out the model train exhibit inside.
