    I absolutely love this museum. It's not just for kids; adults greatly enjoy it as well. The staff is always so pleasant and show that they truly enjoy their job. I love the set up of all the trains, especially the back room that is so intricately designed. The museum is fairly small, but they pack a lot into it.

    I gave it 3 stars because it's not handicapped accessible. If I could have seen it, I probably would have given it 5 stars. It's down stairs & the only access is by a long stairway which means no wheelchairs, mobility scooters, etc. The elevator is not working, No estimate on when, if ever, it might be. I drove all the way down from Lancaster to see this thing & couldn't see it at all.

    I guess if you love model trains this is awesome. But for the price we found it to be disappointing. Almost all displays are behind glass and they all pretty much look the same.
