Great for kids
Mar 15, 2014 by: patravels_7 from Franklin County, PA
I have been bringing my 2 young sons here for years and they love it. There is a train layout upstairs which the kids control with switches,then the regular train layouts are great for them to observe. They also have a Thomas the Train table for kids to play with. At Xmas time, the Xmas train layout in the back is great and my kids love it with they turn out the lights and the entire scene is illuminated. They recently remodeled the facility and it's brighter inside. My only complaints are that there is no where to change a diaper, the layouts are so high with no ground level action that we see at other train shows, and the room with the Xmas trains is too small. That being said, we return here several times a year and we recommend it to all families with kids who love trains.
Nice Holiday Layout

Everyone there was friendly! It is a little rundown looking, but my son loved watching the Christmas trains. They even changed the trains during the time we were sitting there.
For Train lovers!

If you love trains, this is a great place to take a visit...especially for children. We did this when our kids were smaller, not recently, We would recommend for young and old alike.
Great Museum in a Historic RR Town

Hagerstown is called the Hub City because of all the railroads that once came through the city. This museum is a tribute to the history of railroads and the men and women who worked for the B&O and the Western MD RR. They often have great displays for the children during the Holiday Season. Nice place to spend a couple of hours.
We love Trains of Christmas!

Although the museum is in an old building (needs major work) the admission is cheap and the kids love it. It is open all year but we love Christmas time, seeing the holiday trains. Kids can control some trains, see cool moving displays and there are rooms with good info. There is a gift shop there also. Credit card friendly :)
