There was a wedding set up out front and a reception set up inside when our bus tour arrived here. The group was divided to allow guides to take us through the train cars. Some of the cars were decorated for Halloween. The museum had an interesting film on the black porters

The Historic RailPark & Train Museum isn't exactly the best train museum in the country & honestly from a size standpoint it's on the small size from a museum standpoint (although the model train display is huge). The rail cars which have been restored are the highlight of this

Several years ago my wife and I were traveling through Bowling Green and pass the old train station. Since we've always loved old train stations we pulled in the parking lot to peek in the windows. Much to our surprise the gentleman who was working on restoring the old railroad

We appreciate your review! It's great to hear the perspective of someone who visited when the museum was just getting started to seeing what it's become today.

This was a planned stop in Bowling Green and we enjoyed the museum. There is rich history all around and our guide Nathaniel did an excellent job. Loved the model train displays, they brought back wonderful memories

I’m sorry not to be more positive about this place. Had it been free entry (or, at least, cheaper) I would have accepted it as it was. But it cost $36 for two adults and one child. Well, there’s really not a great deal to see. Perhaps we’re spoilt in the UK with the National

We're sorry we didn't live up to your expectations! I haven't been to the UK but I'll have to check out that museum if I do. Unfortunately for us we wouldn't be able to operate if we didn't charge admission. We believe we offer good value for the price, especially with our exceptional tour guides. We do appreciate you visiting us from so far away!
