we took our train loving grandson here to see all the different trains and walk through the ones set up to view. Really enjoyed out time there and our grandson just loved seeing inside the trains and how people used to travel.

In nice weather this is a free moment of fun for your son or grandsons, lots of crawling on and around the trains. Very casual and easy to spend an hour.

I love trains and this is a great place to visit if you don't have a lot of time to spend. Admission is free but please pay the $2 fee to tour the passenger cars. The volunteers were very friendly and knowledgeable.

A unique museum in the southeast portion of Phoenix (the Valley of the Sun) is the AZ Railway Museum. This is a great place to take kids of all ages: the young ones as well as the "seniors." It's a trip down memory lane. It's...More

I remember the big engine when it was on display in downtown Chandler. I'm glad it has a good home now. The coach car housed famous entertainers and the big steam crane did oversized work before it was trendy. During this excursion you start daydreaming...More

Amazing how much there is to see in this little outdoor museum. The old passenger rail cars can bring back memories for older visitors. A very nice collection.
