The museum was pretty boring (and we were the only ones there) but my kids (7 and 2) enjoyed the guided tour of the train cars My 7 year old paid attention and learned quite a bit The inside by the gift shop has a toy train set up the kids loved They also had a couple of trains kids could climb in that were a hit For the price I paid and the enjoyment they had, I'm content

Allow an hour and make sure you do the guided tour. The guide is a volunteer and has amazing knowledge.

Make sure you leave enough time to take the tour of the train cars, as that is by far the main attraction. The museum is nice, but tiny, so it's really only a supplement to the tour (which is excellent and informative).

Pretty cool place to visit. Took my boyfriend there to surprise him and we had a good time. He is a big train enthusiast/collector.

The gentleman that gave the tour did a great job. He was able to make it interesting for our six year old. Worth the money many times over.

From Our Editors

Trains aren't time machines, but the old rail cars at the Historic RailPark & Train Museum transport you back in time nonetheless. With exhibits covering eras as far back as the Civil War, visitors learn how trains impacted the way the United States formed and grew, covering topics such as segregation on the railroad and the lives of hoboes. A rare WWII hospital car shows one way medicine was practiced in war time, and sleeper and dining cars depict how train travel evolved through the eras. Guided tours are included with admission throughout the day, and everyone gets a turn running the model-railroad display.
