It is a wonderful place to take children and I as an adult loved to see all of the trains and an actual location in Oregon. The miniature layout was great and the work in detail was very real. Good look at railroads and the communities they serve. Showed a realistic wildfire and firefighters on the scene.

This railroad museum is the best I have ever seen. The train layout is in several layers with walkways and standing platforms for the little ones. many trains are running all the times and they have "find it" games for the kids that get prizes at the end.

We visited with family. It was a great indoor activity fun for everyone! We enjoyed the exhibits adding the scavenger hunt in was a added bonus. Recommended for all ages

Excellently priced, the people are incredibly nice and knowledgeable. The train layouts are excellent, and the treasure hunt around the whole museum took this to the next level with my kids. If you are in the area, or close enough by, you will not be sorry stopping in here.

A delight for the eyes, this museum offers extensive model train exhibits as well as a real caboose and train collectibles. Gift shop has fun items. Kids love to find the dinosaurs in the scavenger hunt.

Terrific stop with the family. Kids (8-14 yo) were all excited at the trains, details, and treasure hunt. Stop by and spend an hour or two, you will be impressed!

If you are a model train lover and/or have young children this is a must! It is great to challenge them to find the dinosaurs.

You'd be hard pressed to find an adult who is not as mesmerized by this place as the kids. What a great place to spend an hour! The room has some interactive features, balcony overlooks, amazing details in the train landscapes - enough to keep everyone busy and entertained. The only bummer is that, at some point, you'll come to... More

Fairly inexpensive, $8 and if like railroad models this is a must see. Have numerous trains going and the models are very detailed. Very cool.
