Reviewed 26 September 2013 via mobile

In town for the Packers game and decided for a change of pace from all the football-related activities. The quality and quantity of the train exhibits at this museum were simply terrific! Such a wide variety of historical pieces .... from Dwight Eisenhower's WWII command centre train to a Pullman car, and throw in the BIG BOY locomotive - wow! Even if you are not a big fan of trains, you will come away loving this place. Highly recommended.

My grandson had a great time going on all the trains. My only complaint would be that you could not go on everyone of them. It is hard to explain to a 3 year old that you can't go on some of the trains.

This museum emphasizes steam locomotives, passenger rolling stock, and passenger travel.
Centerpiece of the exhibit is a UP 4-8-8-4. Other locomotives exemplifying steam at its peak include a C&O Kanawha and a Soo Pacific. A rarity is a DMIR Texas type, used for slow drag freights. Diesels are largely ignored. Several sleeping cars are on exhibit. For those into decorative arts, the railroad dining car china display is priceless (plastic tableware is an AMTRAK invention.) Short train rides are available. Explanatory signage is excellent, and one may enter most of the locomotives and cars. Not nearly as complete as the B&O museum in Baltimore, but better than most railroad exhibits.

Enjoyed the train ride, except the sound system was not working, so did not hear a lot. Liked the tour of all the old engines. Like the movie and learned a lot about how the engines were made and how they traveled. Would recommend to others.

This place is awesome! The train ride around the grounds was fun, the conductor (guide) was very knowlegeable answered all our questions was very patient with the small children in our group and just made everything more enjoyable. It is so interesting you can go through most of the train cars and engines. There is a display of the various china dinner ware from different rail lines. It is worth th admission price. The only drawback is the gift shop is overpriced.
