Very interesting and well done. My 8 yr old son and 14 yr old daughter (who has always been interested in trains) both enjoyed it very much. It is great for children and very hands-on oriented. The simulated train ride on the funeral train is convincing. It also had interesting, not necessarily related displays which parents can easily browse while their children are entertained by the electronic train set up (can't touch but you can press the buttons to activate trains and other motions) or the "Thomas tables" (I don't think it was actually Thomas). Fun gift shop with lots of options.
