I would not go there just for it, but if you are in the area or going to the metro Zoo it is worth a visit. Interesting to see the President train and some of the oldies.

An excellent insight into traveling by railroad in the past. They also offer rides and tours. If you are intrigued by railroads this is worth the visit.

It's close to the ZOO. You can take public bus to get there but expect a 30 minutes walk from the bus stop. There are many wagons you can walk in.

Been wanting to go to this museum since I was small. My biggest attraction was the rail car that President Roosevelt used after the attack on Pearl Harbor. The model railroad is nicely done as well.
