The model railway Museum is very good and a worth while visit if you are into model trains. Adult entry fee is $8 each and I consider it worth the money. A couple of large layouts will keep you amused for an hour or two. The kids will love this place.
The Model Railway Museum is located in Balboa park, just outside downtown San Diego. It is all up hill from downtown and I would not walk it. We took a cab from downtown to the museum complex in the park. Ask the driver to go near the natural history museum as some don't know about the model railway museum. Cab fare from downtown was around $14. The walk back to downtown was all downhill and took about 15-20min to get back to the gaslamp district if you don't want to get a cab back.
