Lots of old trains to poke about on, you can book parties in one of the cars, neat train related gift store. Meetings can be booked in the main building too. Right next door to the Cottonwood Island Park. Dog friendly museum.

I love this place. I often just take a ride in the summer by myself since my children have all grown up now. And you can buy Frozen Paddle ice cream right at the counter when you buy your ticket to ride.

This promised to be a fun afternoon out seeing some old railway engines and other attractions from the great era of railway. Sadly, from the very entrance it all looked rather sad. Nothing was well maintained or well laid out. We were really interested to...More

We took our grandsons (aged 4 and 19 months) to a Day with Thomas. We all enjoyed the displays and the boys enjoyed the games even though it was raining. It's worth the trip to experience a hands on idea of our past.

brought my parents here when they came to PG to visit. My dad is a big history bluff and loves old equipment and machinery. They both loved it - friendly staff, lots to look at, great way to spend a summer afternoon.

The museum is very hands on, from climbing into old engines and elegant rail cars to old fire equipment. There is an amazing collection of odd logging and rail cars, including rail snowplows and military stock transformed into logging equipment. A small railway takes fans...More

This museum is interesting for both adults and children. It has a model railroad set up inside that small children enjoy and then outside are the old engines, coaches, snowplows, etc. that people can walk through. The admission price is reasonable. There is also a...More

We had a very interesting self guided tour of the museum. It is well worth the admission to see all the different items and collections on site. I would love to go at Christmas to see it all lit up.
