I thought this museum was for kids only. We were pleasantly surprised and enjoyed the museum. The train ride was great and very informative about the history of Hobos.

Who knew that we had a National Railroad Museum? We were so glad we stopped here. Lots of really great stuff to see. Definitely take the train ride. If you have AAA, it's two-for-one admission, or it was the day we went anyway.

Not just a walk-around, you can actually enter the cars on display and walk through them. You can climb aboard the locomotives too. Most of the display is in massive sheds or even inside for the Big Boy and the Ike train. There are some...More

$12 for adults $7.50 for 2-10 y/0 Free under two We took a 3 y/0 and 18 month. They both lived it. The train ride does add more to the admission but both our grandchildren liked that too.
