‘What An Awesome Museum!’

“What an awesome museum! I spent a very enjoyable hour and a half here on my own, just exploring. They have different kinds of exhibits, which I liked — from photos and signs to trains you can enter and look through, every part of the museum is different, instead of being monotonous. And the plaques had a ton of interesting information. This place is really well put together, and I would definitely go back.”

“We have been to many railway museums worldwide and found (the National Railroad Museum) to be one of the better ones. Very well organized and laid out. Exceptionally clean and welcoming. We loved the access to the interiors of so many locomotives and railcars – better than most museums. Some very unique exhibits here not found elsewhere. … Just wonderful and a must for rail enthusiasts.”

“This museum was kept a secret from our 6-year-old train enthusiast until we got there! He had been asking about someday seeing a Big Boy. To say he was excited is a total understatement! We loved everything about the museum! It was fun and educational. The fact you actually get to walk through lots of these old train cars was amazing. I highly recommend it! One of the best museums.”
