Love trains. Some of the displays need some work. The price was ok for what they had. Has potential once things are more complete. Fun to watch the layout run.More

A great staff, especially Kathy who kindly offered my elderly dog a big bowl of water. The docents were helpful in pointing out the most interesting exhibits.

It's a work in progress. I was disappointed because exhibits were sparse. They were building a new O Gauge lay out that should be very nice when complete.

This little museum packs a lot of train punch. It's a little disorganized but you get a nice sense of history. Definitely do the train driving simulator!

The big draw here is a chance to do a railroad simulator and drive a train. Very cool and a great experience. Watch out for deer and vehicles on the tracks! I loved blowing the horn! Great photo op!

We went and learned alot about the rail system. It was used alot to get goods from different parts of the country, besides as a way to travel.

Still under construction in some areas, not worth the admission price, but if you like old RR paraphernalia it might be worth it. Staff was very friendly and helpful.
