Great Educational Trip.

To be able to climb on board a BIG train was a blast for my 6 year old. The museum was interesting and the history of the railway in Foley was educational. Worth some time there.

It was very interesting. The model train layout especially. The volunteers that built and maintain the layout are excited to talk about it.

The Foley Railroad Museum is a quaint attraction that is sure to please any railroad enthusiast. The model train is well constructed and the volunteers do a good job of keeping the lines running. Kids of all ages seem to enjoy watching the trains go round and round.

They have a scavenger hunt for everyone to do. We spent two hours there and I'm sure that we didn't see everything that was there in the model town. Very very outstanding!

My 9 yr old was mesmerized by the model trains in here & could have watched them all day. It doesn't look like much from the outside but this is truly a hidden gem for all ages.

This museum is a must see---contains history of Foley, AL. Has a train that tours with a guide around the John Foley Park. Children love it. Inside there is a small town in miniature with trains of all types. The engineers run the different models and allow children to push buttons for themselves as they are fascinated with the trains....
