There were so many partially and fully restored trains to explore. The exhibits of train memorabilia were well-displayed and informative. The train ride was just long enough and provided a great amount of information.

We visited in the morning before attending a Packer's game. As a retired conductor, I had to see the place. I was very impressed by the bookstore, Dwight's train and the steam engines. The theatre presentation on steam days was excellant. Former CN conductor.

$12 for adults $7.50 for 2-10 y/0 Free under two We took a 3 y/0 and 18 month. They both lived it. The train ride does add more to the admission but both our grandchildren liked that too.
