    Things have changed there a little bit. They used to let you go through lots of different cars and climb on the equipment but they have stopped that. They now give you a 5-10 min tour of some old train cars but after that, you have to look, not climb, on the the other cars. They do have a locomotive that they have built stairs up to so you can climb on that, but just about everything else is off limits. Kids want to climb, not just look, so this is why I only consider this an okay place. Zak in the other review must think that playgrounds have real train cars and that there are many other options. Little boys don’t just want to look but want to climb on trains. Give me a waiver and let’s us touch the equipment. Me and my 7 yr old boy was climbing on some cars and a young, overweight staff member threatened to fight me. I threatened to call the police and then left. This is some old guys hobby. We won’t be back. Ever.

    Great day at the museum yesterday. Most of the cars were open and available for viewing. Great job getting it all ready. Family had a wonderful time.

    I visited recently and greatly enjoyed the visit. The cars they had open were in excellent condition, though a little hot. The other equipment on display had placards explaining the history. There’s a nice collection of railroad artifacts in their building. Xandish down there said in his review he was asked to leave after allowing his 7 year old to climb all over the equipment, but I can’t figure out what he expected. There are signs everywhere asking you not to climb on the equipment, which is entirely understandable considering how dangerous it is and how quickly blame is shifted for one’s own stupidity. If you’re a rail fan or just interested in the history of railroading in AZ, this is a good museum. If you’re looking for a playground, go elsewhere.
