  • This is the place for all age groups, especially for kids and train lovers! There is a real vintage working train to ride. Terrific display of train engines and passenger cars from a various eras... 1800's - 1950's! Even a presidential car used by FDR, Truman and Reagan. First Saturday of each month free entrance!!! Numerous train artifacts displayed. Ample free parking and several food vendors. A military history museum is within walking distance.
  • Only 3 stars because we were able to enter only 4 trains. There were a lot of other trains in their patio but they were blocked to visit. 2 trains that could be visited had signs apologizing (they were closed for events). We did ride the little train and it was $5 per person. The little train was a cute experience for my kids (2 and 5 years old). I knew they had an activity room in the past but it was closed. We stayed for 1h and it was enough to see everything it was available. The trains were wet inside because it was raining the day before. But the lack of care inside the trains broke my heart. I thought that because they are a museum they would try to keep it a little better. I guess it is expensive to repair. It is a nice place to take old style pictures.
