There were awesome exhibits in the museum, one allowed you to control a train and where it went and you had about a few seconds to choose where the correct place it should go is! Overall the whole place is nice and air conditioned. Easy to navigate, and clean! 100% recommended!

Purchased both tickets for the Curve and Museum. Enjoyed walking inside and close to Amtrak station. Lots of cool engines and cars and a nice area to walk. We stood on the overpass and watched a few trains roll thru. Lots of fun.

A well thought out, lively museum learning center that documents the rich Pennsylvania railroad heritage. Well thought out, interesting and fun for all ages... a must see

We were expecting just a railroad museum but this is more. You get the history of the town in addition to the railroad. Very Interesting. If you go, get the combination ticket & go to Horseshoe Curve.
