Our grandkids (ages 3 and 18 months) love strolling around the museum looking at all of the engines. We like to get to the museum when it opens and tour until the first train leaves out of Strasburg.

This was a great place to take you back to yesteryear. You could spend hours here. You can even board certain trains. Highly recommend riding the Strasburg Steam train as well. Great scenery along the way. We all had a great time here.

You should do the museum after sight and sound so that you have time. My 11 year old son loved the museum and railroad. Enjoy!
