Nice place for families to visit. Lots of memorabilia to look at. Nice little train store. Volunteers are helpful.

Wonderful museum and collection of equipment and artifacts. The staff is always knowledgeable and friendly. Some of the items in the gift shop can get a little pricey; but, considering that I know that the proceeds go to help support a first class museum, I have no issues with that whatsoever.

What a gem in Northern Ohio! Fantastic museum, lots of rail cars to walk through, great little gift shop and busy main line for seeing modern railcars in action. Inexpensive for a family outing and worth every penny!
