A free attraction and a good break for all when you have spent other days down at the beach along the Gulf. We had a rainy day so went there. There is a Books-A-Million store as well about 5 miles South on highway 59 that is a good rain day visit.

This museum was worth the trip to Foley. They are only open on certain days, so you need to check that out before going. It was so well done --- we were really impressed! And free on top of it!!

The miniature Railroad Museum is great if you're a railroad buff the craftsmanship that went into the functioning miniature Railroad is excellent and the surrounding static displays took a lot of work the entire park is beautiful and so if you're in the area and you like Railroad you will enjoy this immensely

A friend told us about this railroad museum in Foley. It is a huge train setup that takes up the whole room. The tracks were primarily 0-gauge. The layout was of a town which included everything-homes, circus, drive-in movie, cars, trucks, school, and even a building on fire. There were several tracks and the trains were all running. There was... More

Make sure you go on days where you can see the miniature train village. So awesome. Full of detail! There are little and big trains to view. Lots of picture opportunities!

The museum is small but you can stay for hours. There is a small scale city with a railroad surrounding it. It is very detailed and kids of all ages love it. Best part? It's FREE!! Certain days they have a small "train" to ride on. There's a real train outside the museum to check out also ... The caboose... More

Foley' Train Museum is great for all ages. Our group of 6 were from 6 years to 70 years old and all were thrilled with every aspect of our visit. Many hours of volunteer labor went and goes into this free attraction. You do not want to miss out on this treat.

This is a large and well maintained model rail road set up. The museum itself is interesting but not all that great. Great place to take the kids to see the model RR and take a ride on the train that goes around the park. Check times before you go.
