Great activitiy for your grandchildren, especially younger ones. We visited on Train Day and they had caboose rides, but any visit will have enough to keep your grandchildren busy for 2-3 hours.

Took our two grandchildren to this museum ages 7 & 12. They really enjoyed the interactive exhibits. We spent almost 3 hours wandering throughout the train cars and displays. We also got to tour the workshop where they were rebuilding train cars and locomotives.
