If you are interested in the railway or have a parent that worked 40 years for the railway, this is the place to go. So many stories & the volunteers are truly dedicated people.

It was a very good and educational experience. It requires about 3 hours of your time if you are going through thoroughly. Children love it. The mini car ride was a little useless to me, but again, fun for the child. Good historical display in...More

This is a fully interactive museum. You can walk through almost every train car. You can ride the speeder or one of the trains as well. Wheelchair's are a lot harder to get around but kids can learn a lot there too.
