Very fun for just the average person with just a little interest in history. Neat seeing how things used to be. The staff was fantastic. Train ride was a nice addition. Took about 2 hours to walk through including train ride.

Parking only available for handicap. Neighbors sell parking spots for $10.00. Residential neighborhood is kind to visitors. Museum is a gem. Huge engines to delicate dinner car china. Staff and volunteers are awesome!
