We took our almost 3-year-old grandson to this museum as he has begun to be interested in Thomas the Train. We were the first ones there on a Thursday morning and it was perfect. Right in the entrance area is a small Thomas train set up. It was perfect. When we walked through the curtained doorway into the main room I was astonished as to how large the place is. We went to the right and began our journey around the room. You should note that there are stools that can be carried with you so the little ones have an easier time of seeing. We didn't see the stools until we were way on the other side and almost done so we had to carry him a lot of the time - so look first for the stools. He was a little young to really get a handle on everything but he was certainly mesmerized by the many many trains. He liked pushing the buttons but about half of them do very intricate or small things - like a firefighter climbing up a ladder (or something similar to that). So, he didn't always really see what was happening but I did and I loved it. After going all around the huge display of just hundreds and hundreds of things to see, we went to the Lego room. On the way to the Lego room was another Thomas train display which was at his viewing level. He stayed there quite a while watching for the train to come out of the tunnel. I couldn't believe the Lego room. He didn't really care about it that much but any older child who is into Legos would love it. I thought it was amazing - again hundreds and hundreds of Lego figures, buildings, etc. and of course a Lego train.
I can't wait until he is a little older to take him back. He is just a little too young to be able to really explain to him what to look at but he definitely had a great time seeing what a 2 1/2 year old can observe.
I feel that the museum is easy to find and there is a parking area behind the building.
