My kids and I have visited a few times. It is a lovely place. But it could use more things for older children. The 3d bike ride is really interesting and they love the train items.

A great concept museum with the potential to add to the re-birth of the eastern panhandle of West Virginia. Great interactive stations reliving the history of the railroad and its contributions to opening the West.
