If you have never made the trip to Strasburg to visit the National Toy Train Museum, you should. Only 15 minutes down the road, you pass the Pennsylvania Railroad Museum which is a real bonus for your trip, so don't forget to allow time for a side visit there too.
The items on display at the Toy Train Museum are great, and the displays are accessible and clearly labeled.
Of course, you can't be in a hurry around here since you might get behind an Amish horse and buggy along the way too! It is simply beautiful country.
The TCA has done a marvelous job with the Toy Train Museum. A great display of most of the major gauges, eras and manufacturers is set up. Each display is well labeled and has a brief history of the items on display.
An entertaining video runs showcasing many of the attributes that make collecting and operating fun. Best yet, there are painstakingly crafted operating layouts of most major gauges, each running several lines with numerous opportunities for visitor interaction with many of the accessories.
See the video to get a quick impression for how great a trip to the Toy Train Museum can be for you and your family.
