“Great for photo op's”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

The trains are very nice and authentic. We like taking family there when they are visiting from out of town, as it is a great place to take pictures. While there, we like to visit Babe's Chicken Diner for great food as well.

“ALL ABOARD!!!”
Reviewed December 8, 2012

It's not done yet, but still lots to see! Seems like something new is added every week. Huge steam engines, vintage rail cars, an old station and a switch tower! It's gonna be awesome!

It was fun to climb in & through the trains. We also got to tour the engine room in an Amtrak train that was visiting the State Fair.

“For the kids”
Reviewed December 22, 2011

If your kids love Thomas and for those who don't. American RR museum is a very well maintained yard. Being able to climb aboard and look around is a highlight even for adults.
