    I have been there on almost every visit to Lancaster in the last few years and I never get bored. But I am a certified train nut. On the plus side it’s fantastically laid out for kids of all ages, the AC on a 95 degree afternoon is welcome and the staff are some of the nicest people I’ve ever come across. On the downside – it has a lot of european prototype items on display (interesting, but not my thing) and almost a complete lack of N scale on display. Not so much a shocker on that seeing as it really devotes itself to O and S gauge trains. Also the last time I went there there was an issue with the plumbing forcing visitors to use outdoor “facilities” in the meantime.

    This place is great for train enthusiasts, but people not as interested in the hobby will find it fascinating, too. The building houses many different operating model train layouts, and each layout focuses on a different scale (HO, O, N, S, etc.). There are tons of trains on shelves along the walls. Many old model trains are on display, but there are newer ones, as well. The train layouts have buttons that the visitors can press to interact with the trains and accessories. The museum also has a gift shop. I highly recommend visiting the museum if you are in the Strasburg area and like trains, especially model trains of any scale.

    Toy train enthusiasts, 5 stars. Families with young children, 2 stars. Roadside America is much better for young children.
