We enjoyed this museum a lot. The staff was friendly and , the excursion train left on time. The setting is in the beautiful Hoosier National Forest.

It's always fun to take a train ride, however, I was disappointed. Because it's called Scenic Railway, I was picturing some wonderful vistas from the train, but there is nothing scenic about this tour. We sat on the left side and all we saw were shacks and dilapidated barns. On the way back, we switched sides and it was a... More

We visited for the Wizard of Oz show. The actors were amazing from their costumes to their hospitality to the actual show. Only complaint was it was very hard to see. Wish the main stage had been higher or the seating on a slant or something. The trains were run down but the kids enjoyed it. The train ride was... More

The show and train ride were absolutely amazing. The performers did an outstanding job with constant interaction and entertainment. We drove 4 hours and concerned it wouldn't be worth it, but we were so glad we got to experience it and it was well worth the drive. Everyone was super nice and everyone seemed to have so much fun!!

We took our 4 1/2 year old grandson to see the wizard. He was old enough to enjoy the show and train ride from beginning to end. The show opens under a large tent in French Lick and the continues on the train ride to the Emerald City. When you arrive at Emerald City you leave your assigned train car... More

My sil and I brought my 10 year old niece for the Wizard of Oz train. It was for the kids but my sil and I sang along and laughed as well. The actors really catered to the children and engaged them as they waited for the show to start. The acting was quality and the singing great. The outdoor... More

We went on the wizard of Oz themed ride. We didn't expect such a show before getting into the train. The show continued wonderfully on the train mixing with the sights outside. The kids enjoyed it. Train is fun as itself. The show was a great addition.
