Lots of old trains to poke about on, you can book parties in one of the cars, neat train related gift store. Meetings can be booked in the main building too. Right next door to the Cottonwood Island Park. Dog friendly museum.

We took our grandsons (aged 4 and 19 months) to a Day with Thomas. We all enjoyed the displays and the boys enjoyed the games even though it was raining. It's worth the trip to experience a hands on idea of our past.

brought my parents here when they came to PG to visit. My dad is a big history bluff and loves old equipment and machinery. They both loved it - friendly staff, lots to look at, great way to spend a summer afternoon.

The museum is very hands on, from climbing into old engines and elegant rail cars to old fire equipment. There is an amazing collection of odd logging and rail cars, including rail snowplows and military stock transformed into logging equipment. A small railway takes fans...More

We had a very interesting self guided tour of the museum. It is well worth the admission to see all the different items and collections on site. I would love to go at Christmas to see it all lit up.

Fantastic way to spend a few hours and take a look inside the coaches and the old railway station. Have the children take a ride on the mini railway.
