“Nice little model train museum, absolutely rude and obnoxious owners”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2007

I visited Hartmann's in July 2006 with my wife and two boys, then ages three and four. there is a $6.00 admission, but I can't recall if kids were a lower admission fee. Upon entering, I most certainly recall being rather brusquely warned by the male owner to watch our kids inside the store since there were expensive items there. Okay, I thought, small children, intricate workings, fair enough, though I thought he could have been a lot more cordial about it. No incidents occurred, since we supervise our children. The displays were interesting and well done. There is also an outdoor miniature train that you can ride, but only if you buy something inside the store that specifically advertises Hartmann's. If you buy something else, even if it is considerably more expensive, and expect to be allowed on the train, you may be sharply rebuked by the female owner, and your attention will be directed to an assortment of poor quality souvenirs advertising Hartmann's, which you must buy in order to be admitted to the outdoor train ride. The owners may have been having a bad day. In any case, they were two extremely rude and repellent people that day. If you really love trains, by all means go, and if youdon't mind dealing with people who seem to love nothing else, you won't be disappointed
