“Day out with Thomas a BIG hit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2013

Happened to find the Day out with Thomas event and were able to get tickets (for the next day). We were there ON my 4 year old's birthday. He loved it. Well organized, it was a big hit.

“The museum in Snoqualmie”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2013

It is interesting. Some times of the year a train ride is available which the kids enjoy. The history of this area is indicated and the station is across from restaurants, candy shops, coffee shops and florists, etc.

“Northwest Railway Museum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 May 2013

My son and I loved visiting here to learn about the history of the area. I loved seeing the old trains and the old train station. History needs to be preserved for the young to learn from. It is fun to see the old trains and not just read about them.

“Keeping past rail history alive”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2013 via mobile

This rail museum is just a few miles from the Snoqualmie Falls, is nice to get a glimpse of past rail history. Few old time coaches, few rail engines and a Depot that has some historic pics and a shop, is all that is there to see. Nothing more. Can click pics with these old time engines for rememberance.
