What Will You See in the Museum?
Visitors to the National Toy Train Museum will experience one of the most extensive toy train collections in the world. This includes a variety of meticulously maintained model train layouts, trains that children pushed, pulled, or rode upon, and a variety of miniature trains that are accurate replicas of their full-sized counterparts. Our oldest toy trains date back to the 19th century, though we also have many objects that kids of all ages will remember from their childhoods in the 20th and 21st centuries!
