Our unique collection spans from 1903 to present day. We are also home to one of the largest H/O scale train layouts, with many scale miles of track. We are open on Wednesdays, 6pm-10pm and on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, from 10am-4pm, or by appointment for special groups. We have exciting new exhibits planned each quarter in our main showroom and various community activities throughout the year. We hope you come visit us soon!
