“A day with trains”
Reviewed August 12, 2012 via mobile

This was a great place to take my girls. You can ride a train while there. You can explore many different types of trains and cars. They have a large playground and look out tower too! Just be careful the we're wasps by some of the trains on display outside. Cute gift shop. It is an nice ace to go while in green bay!

“Great place for a field trip.”
Reviewed August 7, 2012

We have gone to the Civil War Days that they offer schools in April. This is the third year in a row that our school has participated in this field trip. They have made impovements each year making it better for our students. Even when it rained they had an alternate plan in place for our kids. I hope that next year they can have the telegraph system fixed so our kids can see how it really works. Excellent staff that is very knowledgeable about that time period. We especially liked hearing about the soldiers from the two men with the tent. We missed not having the games that kids used to play during that time period this year.
