The train museum is free to the public. But accept donations. A ride on the train is $10 and lasts around 30 minutes. I had an enjoyable time. The staff were both helpful and knowledgeable.
Very enjoyable if you are into trains and big mechanical things. If you are visiting Boulder City, NV then this is worth a visit. We did not take the Rail Tour because it was over 90 deg. that day and my wife did not want to be in the direct sun. I think the Rail Tour is a great idea. I that the Model Railroad exhibit would have been open, but it was closed for some reason.
There is so much to see! So much education & history represented here. The actual trains are under cover so you get a first hand experience. There are even some trains you can walk thru & they are set up just like they were originally.
My mom and I had an opportunity to visit this museum over the summer. It’s a really nice little find. The employees are some of the friendliest people I’ve met. One of the gentleman on the train ride went out of his way to make sure everyone was comfortable and shared different pieces of history and facts about the trains. I keep missing the steamers and look forward to trying the pedal carts on a future visit.
This was a cool little spot to work in nature and great for kids and elderly. The staff was so friendly. The train ride is something that you must do. A 20 minute ride , they have air-conditioned cars with very comfortable seats and ceiling fans. If you like the openess they have those cars as well. ( great for picture taking) The views were wonderful..but I am a Nature Person. They also have peddle bikes that you can peddle on the tracks! I had a blast! The conductor Larry let me go to engine and blow the horn.. Loads.. of fun!
