Great place to come with kids or guys who are into railroads. My boyfriend took me and I thought it was cool where the big train set was in the back, but more so good for kids.

When you are in need of a break from the beach, and it’s Tuesday Thursday or Saturday you need to visit the foley railroad museum. Biggest train display I have ever seen, O scale - friendly staff. We stop every time.
