Another visit that was just as good as before. Excellent collection. In out of the wind/cold weather. Great info from staff on selected displays. Stock has never been cleaner than as now displayed. A must for all RR fans and kids of all ages.

If you like trains or history, this is a fabulous place to go. Huge layout, lots of trains and knowledge and friendly staff/docents. They even have a train that you can walk under to see how they are built.

Bought a ride and museum combo. Great experience in beautiful scenery. The museum had so many rail cars inside and out. Worth the visit for a rail enthusiast.

Visited today with my wife. Spent about three hours meandering around, taking time to read the displays and look at things closely. Even though my wife is not a train person, she enjoyed looking at the displays because there is history included in the displays.

An exhaustive collection of well-restored equipment. Located in the midst of many similar RR revivals. A must see during an extended sojourn of steam era and vintage railroads in the surrounding counties.

The four of us visited the museum after first taking a ride on the Strasburg railroad which I highly recommend. I was not prepared for the vastness of the museum and the amount of engines and cars. The engines are kept in beautiful condition. My...More

You should do the museum after sight and sound so that you have time. My 11 year old son loved the museum and railroad. Enjoy!
