“If you don't have kids, or aren't an avid train lover, pass on this one.”
Reviewed 28 October 2012

I can see how this place is appealing to train lovers, or young kids, but really it's not anything close to what I expected. It is a small facility, and there isn't enough there to capture your interest for much beyond a half hour or so.

The staff was very friendly, and it is clear that they love what they have, and are very proud of there museum. There is a lot of creativity that went into the model train display in the center of the room.

“Very interactive”
Reviewed 8 June 2012

Our grandkids loved it. The regulars in the back were very helpful with a problem we were having with our personal model train. The froint desk staff could be alittle more cordial.

“a great family experience”
Reviewed 23 June 2011

A fun and educational experience, filled with working displays, historical dispalys, hands on displays. The volunteers are very friendly and knowledgeable. Take time to look closely at the G scale display to see of of the tongue in cheek jokes. There is a nominal entrance fee of $4.00 per adult or $7.00 per family.
