    Made for a fun afternoon for dad and son. Young kids will enjoy dressing up, playing in the pre-K room and pushing the big red button to make the model train go. And the General is impressive!

    Kids and adults loved this! Had a special model train exhibit that made it well worth the trip. Easy to navigate and parking was a breeze.

    Much bigger than expected. It took us two hours to go through. There is a short movie about the great locomotive chase.

    Scheduled an unguided tour for my son's third birthday party. After the kids explored and played in the preschool area we headed to the playground across the street for cake. Perfect party!
