The organizers of this museum clearly had a vision and they did a very nice job, until they fell on hard times. They've had to close temporarily, but still maintain a website, so they can keep in contact with their supporters. Would love to see it reopen soon.

We were driving to Cleveland and looking for something to do to stretch our legs, and decided the train museum would be entertaining. The displays are wonderfully large, and some are a work in progress. It would be fun to roll up your sleeves and participate in the construction process. It was well staffed and everyone was friendly. There were great deals if you were shopping for your own collection, and even an indoor train ride for the kids. They rely on donations to stay open, and a worthy cause it is. Stop by and be amused, my daughter took hundreds of pictures of mostly scenery, my wife stated as she viewed the camera: "it's hard to tell what's real from our trip, and what's the train displays."

The model railroad museum in Cleveland is awesome. I spent over 5 hours there a few Saturdays back the staff I met was great and very knowledgeable. This place has over 25 scales of trains on display and probably the largest O scale you'll ever see in your life. If you are into model railroading or just trains itself this is a MUST for your bucket list. If you are in the Cleveland area and you want to find something to do that is FREE and you can spend a few hours doing it then don't miss it.

I have a few thoughts to leave you with though first of all it is hard to find no signage AT ALL and the place is in an old warehouse or something so you'll fell like your in a train roundhouse the smell of something just reminds of that. I hope they buy a few buck for buckets of paint for this place someday. But for the size and amount of stuff on display you'll have a fun time.
