Spring Member Spotlight

Member Names: Tenille, Dustin, Remington, and Pryor P.

What made you become a member at the National Railroad Museum?
We were given a family membership as a gift 3 years ago and it has been an absolute blessing.

What is your favorite part of being a member at the museum?
Hearing my son talk about seeing the trains the whole car ride there and seeing his excitement when we pull in the parking lot is what a mom lives for. He loves riding the train, playing with the train tables, and the Eisenhower is his favorite train to explore.

How often do you come to the museum?
Usually trips to the museum are saved for the weekend when the whole family is together. This way daddy and little brother can come too. Remington, Pryor, and I also visit on Thursdays when I have off of work. Remington asks almost daily if we can go. If we can’t go today he says “Okay tomorrow.”

What is a special memory you have at the Museum?
When I had my second son, Pryor, I wanted to take Remy on a special date. This was a great way to spend some one-on-one time with my little man before I returned to work. When asked where he wanted go,  you guessed it, he picked to go see the Big Choo Choos! That day will forever hold a special place in my heart because in 8 months it was the only mommy-Remy day we’ve had.

What is your favorite train?
Remy and Pryor’s favorite train to explore is the Dwight D Eisenhower.  Remy’s other favorite train is the Big Boy because it looks like The Polar Express™.

What is your favorite exhibit at the Museum?
Remington loves playing in the Children’s Discovery Depot.  Pryor loves the gallery with the photographs because the room echoes when he is in there.

What is your favorite Museum event?
We go to almost all of the museum events!  We attend all of the holiday events, such as The Great Bunny Train, The Great Pumpkin Train, and The Polar Express™.  In summer, we also attend Day Out With Thomas™ .  The National Railroad Museum is where my second son, Pryor, met Santa and the Easter Bunny for the first time!  I would have to say Remington’s favorite event is The Polar Express™ Train ride.  After attending the event he loves to watch the movie and listen to the theme song!

Anything else you want to add?
We had the hopes that Pryor would grow to love the Museum as much as Remy and he does! His favorite book is currently Train Man. And you can often catch him yelling “Choo Choo!” and “All Aboard!”.  Pryor loves running around and exploring the trains with his big brother Remington. I’m expecting our third child and we can’t wait to introduce him or her to the Museum. We are so blessed they can create these memories together.  Our family loves the National Railroad Museum!
