My husband and I are probably two big kids. We found the train museum interesting. Not so sure if it will keep small kids entertained, but we enjoyed it.

Great museum for the model train novice. Brought back memories of my childhood. Heard a 8 to 10 year old speak with authority on what he was seeing. Good to know there are young people still interested.

If you ride the railroad, you can tour for free. We spent about 45 minutes admiring the train collection as well as doing the scavenger hunt on the big layout. Not just for train buffs

This was included in our train tickets and it was setup so nice. Kinda wished the whole family was with but this was for our anniversary so my husband and I spent quite a bit of time looking around. Glad we took the time.

The Museum was a fantastic conclusion to a fun train ride. As a kid, Lionel Trains were a huge part of my life courtesy of my Dad, and it was great to see such a complete collection of Lionel engines, cars and accessories.

Went on the train tour and finished by walking the the museum, very charming. The model railroads that rode around the tables were very impressive. The miniature recreations of the people and houses were done very well. I'm not a train enthusiast, but I enjoyed...More
