I went for the second time - the last being 5 years ago and reviewed also on Trip Advisor. This visit was pretty much the same as the first. Very interesting model train layout and the real railroad related displays are excellent. There were several people operating the trains (a Saturday).

FABULOUS, well run exhibit that is one of a kind. FEATURED in model railroad magazines and film (available to purchase in imaginative, collectibles gift shop). This is the finest PRIVATE exhibit in the USA and only those with government money put "more" into such an exhibit.

If you like trains, museums, or models this place is amazing! All models were done really, really well. We spent 2 hours just looking at all the exhibits.There is a little gift store and exhibits of people and items that were important to the railroad. They also have annual events that they highlight a topic for the month. Example- March... More

This museum is great. I went here for work to check it out and wasn't disappointed. It has so many things to look at and you can get up close to the models and see all the little details. The staff is very nice and informative. If you have littles, this is a great place to burn an hour or... More

Awesome! Unbelieveable museum and operating model railroad; just like the real thing running outside their front door.

Great for kids and adults. Large scale working train models with lots of towns, switchyards, mountains, lakes, tunnels. You walk above and at train level. Especially fun is looking for the stray dinosaurs.

If you have time it's definitely a must see if you have any interesting trains or toy trains. The details are incredible. It is definitely not just for kids.

Our little railroad museum is just so fun!! You can expect to spend maybe an hour or two here but our children just love it and I've got all kinds of different scavenger hunt you can do. We especially like when they have Star Wars day.

Finally a museum where there are actual TRAINS.....running!! and more than one!!! I was tired of museums where the kids asked "Why aren't the trains moving?" Even though my 4 year old was a little too short still, if we went upstairs on the 'catwalk', he loved looking down on everything. And Bar None, the best set of Thomas &Co.... More
