We thoroughly enjoyed this place. Keep watch for the red buttons that allow you to control little parts of the scenery. The best part was the little women feeding the tiny chickens.

We went in a day when the farmer's market was going on, across the street. Models were amazing! Not too far to drive from Denver and well worth the trip.

This model railroad layout is one of the best, if not the best in the country. We have visited it several times, in the past, and always find it great. This is a "must see" when you are in the area.

The main layout in the museum is in fact HO scale which is a 1:87 ratio. The museum also has an O scale and a G scale layout and we are working on a small N scale one that was recently donated.

They have a game for the kids where they need to search for items, that can take about an hour. There's plenty to see in a smaller place, about 7000-10000 square feet, a few hours should be enough time.
