Visited with three generations of family and there is something for everyone. The layout makes it easy to immerse yourself in the displays and if a great way to learn more about how important the railroads helped shape this country.

We took our grandkids to the museum to see the trains. It has been a long time since I have visited the museum. It seems better than I remember it. It seems like there is more to it and I wish we had more time to have seen all the exhibitsEveryone should visit it if they have the chance, but take at least 3-4 hours to see, read and listen and watch the presentations available.

We took our 4 year old with his friend to celebrate his birthday weekend and they loved it.The displays are very well laid out. My 66 year old parents enjoyed it and did not get that tired. The train tables on the top floor is where we spent most of the time, no surprises there. There are ample restrooms on each floor and they are maintained well. The ramps in most of the levels makes it very easy to move around which is important for people with strollers or those with painful knees.
The exhibits are very informative and the tours are very well scheduled.
We took the Amtrak into the city and this museum is just a couple of minutes walk away. There are plenty food options right across the street.
It seems like we will be coming back here a lot.
